About Us

The Potters Barn is set in the heart of the UK in the beautiful Cheshire countryside next to the Trent and Mersey canal and close to Junction 17 on the M6 motorway.

Opened in 1992 the Pottery is owned and run by Andrew Pollard and Steve Marr.  They met whilst studying at Farnham in 1975 and have worked together ever since –  (that’s over 35 years ! )

The Potters Barn is a fully working pottery and open to the public most days.  Here you can see how and where the pottery is made,  see the  finished items on display in our gift shop.  Why not have a go – “Play with Clay”, Paint Pottery or take a turn on the Potters Wheel.

If you are bitten by the creative bug  we have  regular pottery classes.  We also run many other craft courses such as silversmithing, upholstery, stone carving or  long bow making  to name but a few…… the choice is yours.

Childrens parties, Corporate events, Teambulding, Hen parties, we recently did a 50th birthday party…….the Potters Barn is something different, no matter what the occasion,  young or old ,  ‘playing with clay’  appeals to all !
