Leekfrith Torcs Appeal

Discovered in the Staffordshire Moorlands, the Leekfrith Iron Age Torcs give us a tantalising glimpse of life in North Staffordshire around 2,500 years ago. The fabulous gold jewellery, comprising three neck torcs and one bracelet, was unearthed by metal detectorists in 2016. Experts believe that they are probably the oldest Iron Age gold found in Britain and the intricate decoration on the bracelet is a rare example of Early Celtic art.

Thank you! Save the Vase Appeal meets its target

Our appeal to save Josiah Wedgwood’s First Day Vase has been successful. The purchase price of £482,500 has been raised thanks to the generosity of private donors, charities, grant-giving bodies and other organisations. The vase will be back here and on display from 16th September 2017.
