Description:
Today run as an industrial museum by Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Jesse Shirley’s Flint and Bone Mill was built in 1857, alongside the Trent and Mersey Canal. The site includes a flint kiln, working steam engine and grinding pans that had remained in production until 1972.

Jesse Shirley was born in Etruria on 17 November 1848. He was educated at Alfieri's Academy, Northwood, Hanley, and was in partnership with his brother, H. B. Shirley in the firm of Jesse and H. B. Shirley, bone and flint mills, Etruria.

The company started in 1820 and still operates today and is the world's oldest producer of calcined bone ash use in the manufacture of fine bone chine pottery.

In 1837 Jesse Shirley started to supply calcined bone ash to Josiah Wedgwood and Sons Limited. This enabled Jesse Shirley to prosper in Etruria, near to the renowned factory of Josiah Wedgwood.
