Enjoy a day out at Denby in the heart of Derbyshire. Our Visitor Centre is next to the Pottery in a cobbled courtyard with shops, pottery tours, free daily cookery demonstrations and regular events.
The Pottery is actually situated about a mile from the main village and provides employment for about 650 people from the locality. It also draws around 300,000 visitors a year to its factory and visitor's centre. Forty percent of the potteries output is exported, with Canada, Italy, Norway and Sweden the largest markets, after America, and though new ranges come in all the time, the dark blue and green tableware is the perennial favourite, its unique glaze instantly recognisable as Denby.
