United Kingdom Historic Building Preservation Trust
The United Kingdom Historic Building Preservation Trust (UKHBPT) is one of The Prince's Charities with HRH The Prince of Wales as its Patron. The UKHBPT supports and strengthens communities by rescuing and reusing significant British buildings at risk of demolition or decay.
The UKHBPT bought Middleport Pottery in 2011 to save and restore it with a three-year, £9-million project. UKHBPT 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.
Burleigh use under half of the building, creating space for other local businesses to rent. UKHBPT also conducts tours of our factory which can be booked through the Middleport Pottery website here.
