The manufacture of creamware was revived in Leeds in 1983, but when funding ran out the factory moved to Stoke-on-Trent. In 1992 it was purchased by John Croft and was renamed Hartley, Greens & Co. after the original Leeds Pottery. It has since passed into the ownership of Denby. In 2013 moved to Middleport Pottery, Port Street, Stoke-on-Trent, where it continues to produced creamware in 18th century style.
