The Potbank Dictionary - the glossary of The Potteries of Stoke-on-Trent. Established 1976

Here are those wonderful words, such as blunger,  saggar,  jomuklobby and ewster that were 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. All are fascinating. This is not an academic work but in fact, in places, its rather quirky!
