Worcester WR1 2ND
Dr John Wall founded the Worcester Porcelain Company in 1751, as we heard in our July talk. Sadly, the manufacturing of china in Worcester finished in 2006, but the Porcelain Museum continues to pay homage to its magnificent heritage with the largest collection of Worcester Porcelain in the world. A recent £1.7 million Heritage Lottery grant has enabled the museum to show off its displays to best advantage. The visit includes an introductory film featuring Henry and John Sandon and a talk giving a ‘behind the scenes’ perspective. Refreshments are available for purchase at the museum.
