Details

Founded by Josiah Wedgwood near Stoke-on-Trent in 1769 to house the workers in his pottery, Etruria was probably the world’s first planned industrial village. The three parts of this illustrated history reflect the three phases of its existence: Jasper, representing Wedgwood’s celebrated Jasper Ware; joists for the Shelton Bar Steelworks later established in the area; and Jillivers, for the National Garden Festival that revived the fortunes of the abandoned post-industrial site in the 1980s.
