Leading to Master Potter – The Kiln
Josiah Wedgwood - July 12, 1730 - January 3, 1795, born Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent was an English potter, credited with the industrialization of the manufacture of pottery. He was a member of the Darwin — Wedgwood family, most famously including his grandson, Charles Darwin.
Wedgwood's work was of very high quality (when visiting his workshop, if he saw an offending vessel that failed to meet with his standards, he would smash it with his stick, exclaiming, "This will not do for Josiah Wedgwood!"). Wedgwood was also keenly interested in the scientific advances of his day and it was this interest that underpinned his adoption of its approach and methods to revolutionize the quality of his pottery. His unique glazes began to distinguish Josiah's wares from anything else on the market.
The co ordinates listed are for the Wedgwood family memorial tablet.
To find the co ordinates to the final cache you need to go to the co ordinates listed.
