“It took Peter Roden fifteen years to compile Copyhold Potworks, a lengthy publication containing many reproductions of maps and document excerpts. It examines the copyhold tenure of potworks and housing within the manor of Newcastle-under-Lyme and is therefore divided into three manageable parts: Part 1, Copyhold Tenure; Part 2, Potworks; and Part 3, Housing Developments.” – excerpt from a review by Neil Ewins, Senior Lecturer, Design History, University of Sunderland, first published on the Chipstone Foundation website.
