Former Wedgwood Institute (Public Library), Queen Street, Burslem - Stoke-on-Trent, City of (UA)

This art school, gallery and library complex was built in 1869 and constructed in brick and terracotta with an ornamented facade. The long term aspiration for this derelict building is to bring it back into use. A first phase of repairs to re-roof the front range and carry out other assorted works was finished in autumn 2016. A new use for the building needs to be secured, and a strategy put in place to protect the building from further deterioration and undertake the next phase of repairs.
