Wedgwood Potworks

Churchyard Works, Burslem

The small pottery site occupied and worked by the Wedgwood family from 1656, when Josiah Wedgwood Iís great-grandfather first took possession of it. 

Josiah served his apprenticeship there. The site derives its name from the nearby Church of St Johnís, where Wedgwood himself was baptised on 12th July 1730.
