Four bottle kilns at TG Greens Pottery, John Street, Church Gresley, Swadlincote - South Derbyshire

Four C19 pottery kilns and surrounding factory complex. Buildings are vacant and have suffered from theft and damage to the roof resulting in severe water ingress. Roof trusses are suffering from decay due to wetness and the truss ends are particularly at risk. Localised structural failure and collapse has already occurred in parts of the factory complex. Historic England is discussing options for stabilisation and urgent repairs with the owner and Local Planning Authority.
