The Potbank Dictionary - the glossary of The Potteries of Stoke-on-Trent created in 1976
Here are those wonderful words, such as blunger, saggar, jomuk, and lobby that were very common in The Potteries. These words have been collected during a lifetime in potbanks. Some are specific to a particular factory, others are more general. Some vary from potbank to potbank and from Tunstall in the north to Longton in the south. Some are technical, and some feature the very special dialect of The Potteries. Some words are being lost as potbanks close or manufacturing methods change. But all are fascinating! This is not an academic work. In fact, in places, its rather quirky. But it is as true and as accurate as I can make it.
