North Staffordshire Women

A talk by local historian, cartoonist, author and artist Mervyn Edwards.

Mervyn’s talk looks at the lives of several women who made their mark in North Staffordshire. These include pottery designer Clarice Cliff, one of the most fascinating creative talents ever to emerge from the Potteries - and the good deeds of two very different political and social campaigners: Millicent, Duchess of Sutherland (the Princess Diana of her day) and also the spitfire from Silverdale who gave her name to the Fanny Deakin Maternity Home.
