Not much to see at this site, however, the kilns are of the down draught type and therefore I believe the final survivors of this sort in the Potteries. They now stand alone as the associated buildings have been demolished and they look very sad and neglected. Still worth a visit for those interested in Stoke's heritage. The other buildings are located just across the road.

Acme Marls produced kiln furniture - shelves, saggars etc. Founded in 1932 the company was bought in 2000 and the site was never used due to 'consolidation' of the company.

On with the pics

initially coal-fired the kilns were evidently converted to oil fired as deduced from the pipes and large oil barrel

more pipework
