Bottle oven and factory, Price and Kensington Teapot Works, Newcastle Street, Longport - Stoke-on-Trent, City of (UA)

An early C19 pottery complex with a bottle oven that has been repaired and only one range now occupied. A fire in the three storey range has resulted in the demolition of walls above the second floor and the removal of the roof structure. This site has been subject to heritage crime and is highly vulnerable. The site is rapidly deteriorating. Urgent works are required to stabilise the buildings while a new use is sought.
