Peak District

Burleigh is the last working Victorian factory in England. Specialising in transfer printed ceramics, we are also one of the very few potteries still manufacturing a pure English product. Our canal side factory at Middleport is described in Arnold Bennett’s classic novel “Anna of the Five Towns” and still retains an air of the industrial revolution.
