Longton Pottery Factory, near a clay open mine or marl hole. Two tall bottle kilns, standing like sombre Sentinels guarding the great deep pit formed from generations of clay extraction by local potters.
Red marls were the basic clays used for most early pottery. Later used for fire bricks and saggars, roof and floor tiles.
