Gladstone Museum, Stoke

Another very interesting place to visit in Stoke is the Gladstone Museum.  It was once a working pottery and still has six or seven bottle kilns which are, of course, not being used now.  Although the hand made saggers were stacked as if ready for use.  The workshop had displays of how the saggers were made, a large jigger and jolly as well as an old potters wheel where the potter's wife or child was the power source.
