Churchyard Works (1656-1759)

The small pottery site occupied and worked by the Wedgwood family from 1656, when Josiah Wedgwood I's great-grandfather first took possession of it. Josiah served his apprenticeship there. The site derives its name from the nearby Church of St John's, where Josiah himself was baptised on 12 July 1730.
