As a self confessed fashion lover, when I read that one of the many potteries on our doorstep here in Staffordshire was collaboration with none other then Ralph Lauren, I was in the car and the way there! Having never visited Middleport pottery before, the home of ‘The Great Pottery Throw Down‘ on channel 4, weddings, a fabulous cafe, education centre and also the Burleigh Trademark (the iconic print that’s hooked up with Ralph Lauren), I can’t believe what I have been missing out on all this time!
With loads of educational activities focused on the history of the factory and also a wonderful multi story outlet shop for the grown ups, there is something for everyone.
We were even treated to a little guided tour of the building, taking a peek into the work rooms and untouched style production line areas that dated back to 130 years ago.
