The "Verwood Heathland Heritage Centre" project has preserved and restored a unique Primitive Country Pottery workshop, providing a Heritage Centre focusing on the Dorset Heathland and local Crafts. The picture shows the Centre pictured from Ferrett's Green.
The Exhibition Area, contained in the original Potters' Workshop, has been extended for further Exhibition Space and a Research Centre. This extension was opened on the 13th June 2005 by the Marquess of Salisbury.
The Initial Phase was also officially opened by the Rt. Hon, the Viscount Cranborne (now the Marquess of Salisbury), Patron of the Centre, on Friday 28th February 2003.
