The research on these pages regarding the history of Brampton potteries is the result of an MA History of Ceramics Project, at Staffordshire University, entitled Brampton Pots in the Kitchen: Marketing and Consumption in the Nineteenth Century. It was completed under the guidance of the Course Leader, Graham McLaren.

Josie Walters thanks the curators from the Chesterfield Museum and Art Gallery for their time, encouragement and their generosity with archival material, without which this study would not have passed the reception desk. Josie Walters would also like to thank the curators from the Derby Museum and Art Gallery, Nottingham Museum and the Erewash Museum for the time they gave in assisting with the photography of the Brampton pottery in their collections.

This information is based on a catalogue for an exhibition of Brampton pottery which was shown at a number of museums in the East Midlands and thanks are due to those museums who have contributed to the project. Josie Walters should also like to acknowledge the contributions from members of the Langley Pottery Society to the exhibition.

The catalogue was sponsored by CASPAD, the research Centre for Advanced Studio Practice in Art and Design in the School of Art and Design at the University of Derby. Design/art direction was by Robert Kettell, photography by CEDM Photo and Video Department at the University of Derby and Michael Taylor for Nottingham Castle Museum. Production was by the Print Department at the University of Derby.
