A WEDGWOOD GEOGRAPHY LESSON
Some time ago I found this wonderful blog which identifies and describes the various towns which make up the oft-used term "The Potteries" sometimes also just called "Staffordshire" when discussing pottery, china, ceramics and other such terms. When using our website for shopping or learning, you will sometimes see a reference to a place in Staffordshire, such as the name of a pottery which includes its locale. A review of this site will probably help a student of Wedgwood and other Staffordshire potteries become much more familiar with the geography of one of the best parts of England! Yes, that might just be a biased opinion! One of the favorite places in Stoke for us Wedgwood collectors is the grave of Josiah Wedgwood at the Parish Church of St. Peter Ad Vincula - enjoy and think of taking your own photos in Stoke!You might also see my post titled BURSLEM in the POTTERIES of 3/23/11 for some lovely pictures and information about Burslem, the town where Josiah was baptized.
