This website gives you the unique opportunity to view the Rockingham Pattern Book bought by Rotherham Museums Galleries and Heritage with generous assistance from the Heritage Lottery Fund. The Pattern Book gives invaluable insights into the social and design history of the Rockingham Works. During the period when the Pattern Book was in use, Rockingham was one of the most highly regarded manufacturers of porcelain in the country. An overview of products made in Swinton can also be seen here, along with illustrated background history pages and a wide range of teachers' resources.
