Nathaniel Ireson (1685– 18 April 1769) was a potter, architect and mason best known for his work around Wincanton in Somerset, England.

He was probably born in Ansley, Warwickshire.[1]

He rebuilt much of the centre of Wincanton following a fire in 1707.[2]

He was churchwarden at St Peter's in Stourton, Wiltshire during the 1720s and may have done work on the church himself.[1]

He moved to Wincanton around 1726,[3] and owned a pottery there from 1738-1750.[4] There is a monument to him in the Churchyard of St Peter and St Paul, Wincanton,[5] including a statue which he is believed to have carved himself.[1]
