19th Century Industrial Monument steeped in a history of incredible creative spirit and endeavour and the fact that it remains today as the UK’s only steam-powered pottery is testimony to that.

The Pottery itself was restored in 1994 and 1995 and the steam machinery was restored in 1995 by Engineer and Steeplejack Fred Dibnah and was featured in his TV series.The work of care and restoration continues and much of the revenue received is used in this way.

The original Beehive kiln is still here and is part of the Museum exhibition which shows the different styles of pottery produced at Wetheriggs over the years.

Guided tours are available all year round with a specialist guide and booking is essential so please ask for details.
