The China Hall, Old Spode Works, Kingsway, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 1JH – Visit Now

The China Hall is a vast space in the former Spode Works factory in Stoke-on-Trent. The Spode factory was founded by Josiah Spode in 1775 and continued to produce Spode wares (ceramics, pottery and homeware) until 2008. During the 19th century, Spode became one of the two largest potteries in Staffordshire, with 22 bottle ovens and employing around a thousand people. It is one of the main venues for the British Ceramics Biennial 2017.
