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

This early C19 pottery complex contains a repaired bottle oven but is now practically derelict and mostly unoccupied. The site has been subject to fires, heritage crime and is in a very poor condition: it is highly vulnerable and continues to deteriorate. The roadside building range of this complex was demolished in November 2019 because it was in immediate danger of collapsing into the road. Historic England has offered technical support and advice to Stoke City Council. Urgent works are required to stabilise the buildings whilst a long term solution is found for the site.
