UK»England»Derbyshire»Denby Pottery Museum

Denby Pottery Museum: The original pottery was established by the Bourne family in 1809 after the discovery of a fine clay in the locality. In this small museum you can see examples of Denby' rich heritage from early salt glazed bottles and jars to the popular tableware of recent years. All the tours of the factory at Denby are conducted in groups by experienced Tour Guides who explain the processes involved in making the pottery. The visitor even has the opportunity to have fun, you can feel the clay and if you are feeling really ambitious you can have a go at painting a plate and can even have it fired for an additional charge. For small children there is an outdoor play area.
