This document of over 100,000 terms describes and defines the peculiar words and phrases collected during a lifetime in potbanks. Some are specific to a particular factory, others are quite common. Some are technical, and some feature the special dialect of the Potteries. Many of them are dying out as potbanks close, skills are lost and manufacturing methods change.
This is not a particularly academic work but it is factual and in places it's rather quirky! Established in 1976 by Terry Woolliscroft and constantly updated. This site was archived for preservation by the British Library.
