Enjoy a guided walk behind the scenes look at our 1888 William Boulton Steam Engine. The heart of Middleport Pottery!

The events starts at

12:00 with a warm brew and a presentation from one of our steam engine engineers.

13:00 – 14:30 – A closer look - A guided walk around the heritage areas with one of our knowledgeable guides then onto our steam engine and into the nitty gritty with our engineers. A nosey in the slip house too!

Followed at 15:00 – Pie & Peas - Hearty portion of Pie and Peas, Tea & coffee and a chance to mingle and ask questions.

Proceeds will go towards maintaining and operating the only* William Boulton Steam Engine in existence!

*We believe that this is the only William Boulton Steam Engine in existence. A fully restored example of a late Victorian, horizontal engine. It was designed for the ‘Model Pottery’, Middleport Pottery – a pioneering engineering project that was to ‘modernise’ the production of ceramics.
