The funding came from a range of sources including the Regional Growth Fund, Heritage Lottery Fund, English Heritage and European Regional Development Fund as well as from private donors, Stoke-On-Trent City Council has been a key partner in the project. Middleport Pottery continues to be the 'Home of Burleigh'; the pottery business which occupies approximately half the site. Burleigh continues to produce beautiful ware in the building which has been their home since it was built in 1888. This atmospheric site now features a visitor centre to explore and cafe to enjoy. These facilities are aimed to attract visitors from out of the area and offer spaces and facilities for community use. We also offer a varied programme of education, events and activities. In the remaining space, workshops have been created for small businesses bringing further jobs to the area, allowing them to grow and flourish. We are committed to offering training and development and are working in partnership with the other Prince's Charities, Staffordshire University and many local organisations to offer exciting opportunities. The Burleigh factory shop and Middleport cafe is open 7 days a week, and the visitor centre is open Tues-Sun. Guided tours must be prebooked via the Middleport website, or by telephoning the Middleport team. « less
