Rescued from the bulldozer in March 1971 Gladstone is home to the most important group of bottle ovens remaining in the UK. Gladstone Pottery Museum in Longton, Stoke-on-Trent, is a restored potbank from the days when coal-burning bottle ovens made the world's finest pottery. There are five magnificent, towering ovens in this unique setting - the multi-award winning, industrial museum of the pottery industry. If you are visiting Stoke-on-Trent then go to Gladstone first and you'll find out what the Potteries is all about.
