Sharpe’s Pottery Museum is nestled in the market town of Swadlincote at the heart of South Derbyshire and The National Forest.
Come and visit our unique grade two listed building where you will discover stories of Sharpe’s family history, and the significant changes from 19th century deep coal and opencast mining, clay extraction and associated industrial activity, to a 21st century sustainable landscape led by the creation of The National Forest.
