Workshops, offices and heritage centre to support Stoke-on-Trent pottery

Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios has submitted proposals for the restoration of a pottery in Stoke-on-Trent for The Prince’s Regeneration Trust.

The plans involve adding workshops, offices, a café and heritage centre to support the Middleport Pottery business.

Geoff Rich, partner and studio leader at Feilden Clegg Bradley, said: “The project is a perfect example of the importance of creative reuse in bolstering local economies and improving people’s lives.”

Ros Kerslake, chief executive of The Prince’s Regeneration Trust, said: “Our project will save and restore the historic fabric of the last working Victorian pottery in the UK.”

The planning application was submitted in March. A decision is expected in July and if approved construction will start in September.
