|Wed Jun 24th||Wedgwood and Trentham Gardens|
We shall be visiting the Stoke-on-Trent area to take a factory tour in the heart of the Potteries at Barlaston, the home of Wedgwood, where we shall see up close the craftsmanship, artisan skills and techniques which have been developed over 260 years.
Following this we shall visit one of the finest gardens in Britain at Trentham. At the centre of the Gardens is the mile long Capability Brown designed, Trentham Lake alongside the River Trent. There are plenty of walks and trails to explore the gardens which include the Italian Gardens and Floral Labyrinth. You can buy lunch and refreshments at one of the many cafés and restaurants available or you may prefer to take a picnic and use the tables by the lakeside or around the gardens. Trentham also has a shopping village and garden centre.
