Belleek Pottery Visitor Centre has launched its new "Mr Bloomfield Trail" for younger visitors. The tour, which gives recognition to John Caldwell Bloomfield as an important character in the development of Belleek Pottery, is animated through a series of wall mounted colourful cartoon plaques with bite size interpretation, appealing to younger visitors. With 16 plagues along the way, each representing a decade in the rich heritage of Belleek since its foundation in 1857, children will follow The Bloomfield Trail Map answering clues along the way.
