Today, visitors to the area can visit a unique museum where they can witness how 19th-century potters worked. The Gladstone Museum in Longton is the only surviving complete Victorian pottery factory from the days when coal burning bottle ovens made the finest English bone-china. Decorative porcelain from this period continues to fetch high prices and gets shipped all over the world.
