The Etruria Industrial Museum and Heritage centre is the home of Jesse Shirley’s 1857 Bone and Flint Mill (Etruscan Mill), the only remaining operational Steam Driven Potters' Mill in the world.
The museum, mill and site is maintained and operated by volunteers. At present (2017) the museum is open for steaming weekends (when the 1903 boiler is fired, and the 1820s 'Princess' beam engine powers the historic machinery) educational talks and private bookings, but they hope to open more regularly in 2018.
