Wedgwood Walks | Wedgwood Estate and Barlaston Village

Wednesday 19 August 2020

10am – 12pm | £7.50 per person

Summer has arrived at the Wedgwood Estate and village of Barlaston, so it’s the perfect time to get outdoors and embrace what’s on our doorstep - and you’re invited!

This beautiful area is steeped in history and heritage so our expert tour guides have created a walk that will benefit both mind and body – just what we need right now.

The Wedgwood family has been an influential part of Barlaston for many years and our guides can tell a tale or two that many won’t have heard before.

The walk starts from Josiah Wedgwood’s statue at World of Wedgwood taking a circular route via Queen Mary’s Drive up to Barlaston Hall, through Barlaston village by the Duke of York pub, Barlaston Village Green, the Plume of Feathers and back along the picturesque canal to World of Wedgwood. Discover new things from Saxon burials, unsung heroes, the odd surprise, and some rich heritage along the way.
