Re-Form Heritage & Burleigh Pottery

Re-Form Heritage is an independent charity which specialises in the restoration and rejuvenation of heritage buildings at risk of decay or demolition. Re-Form Heritage’s objective is to transform these historic buildings into local assets, creating job opportunities and catalysing wider social and economic benefit.

Re-Form bought Middleport Pottery in 2011 to save and restore it with a three-year, £9 million project. The charity has regenerated the site so that it can function as a pottery and visitor destination, showcasing the history and heritage of Burleigh Pottery and the building itself. The business of Burleigh remains a separate entity and we continue to make iconic ceramics as tenants of Middleport Pottery. We also run a Burleigh factory shop on site.

Burleigh uses less than half of the building, creating space for other local businesses to rent. Re-From also conducts Middleport Pottery tours which can be booked online here. If you're planning a visit, make sure to note down the address and directions.
