    This building stands alone now near Hanley, the surrounding rows of terraced houses now demolished. Originally the home of Nelson Pottery and in its latter years as Nelson Industrial estate where it housed, amongst other things an insulation firm and a bathroom showroom.

    "The firm of Elijah Cotton Ltd. of the Nelson Pottery is and always has been identified with the manufacture of jugs, in the production of which they can undoubtedly claim to be specialists. In fact the firm's remarkable output of these more than justifies their claim to be the largest manufacturers of jugs in the world. At their extensive works jugs of all sizes and shapes are made, from miniatures with a capacity of three fluid ounces to giants of ten pints".

    Not the best pictures in the world I'm sorry, this building is in a very poor state and has suffered much fire damage/vandalism.

    Thanks for looking, these potteries are becomming a rare breed.
