Etruria Industrial Museum 2024

Home to Jesse Shirley’s 1857 Bone and Flint Mill, the only remaining operational steam driven potters’ mill in the world. Driven by a 1820s Boulton & Watt pattern rotative beam engine which is one of the oldest still working. Steam is raised by a 1903 Cornish boiler. Located at an attractive canal junction, there is a visitor centre, blacksmith’s forge, canal warehouse and toll office.
