Etruria Industrial Museum and Heritage Centre, the home of Jesse Shirley’s Bone and Flint Mill - the only steam driven potter's mill in the world. Opened in 1857, Jesse Shirley's Bone and Flint Mill was fully restored between 1978 and 1990 the mill is driven by a rare 1820s Boulton and Watt pattern rotative beam engine. It is one of the oldest still working and may be the oldest still driving the machinery for which it was installed.
Discover how they put the 'bone' in bone china at the last working steam-powered potters mill in Britain. Bring the family when the mill is 'in steam', when the boiler is fired, and the 'Princess' beam engine powers the historic machinery.
