    For Turk and I this is where it all began, and for myself this building started a lifelong passion for exploring industrial buildings. It is doubtful that anybody reading this has not relieved themselves in a piece of ceramic made in this building...

    I didn't even really understand what I was looking at back then, but looking back this place was good... god knows what epic I walked straight past. The entire basement level was full of very old records which would probably have been incredible if we had looked through them properly, but it took a while to hone the old raking skills!

    Out back a pair of very fine bottle kilns stood among the rubble, quite well preserved considering they had been unused since the 50's

    Quite unbelievably this building was brought back from the brink and today still stands as flats. See Stoke, you can do it!!

    The incredible customer toilets, every part including the cubical partitions made of china

    This collapsed between our visits in '05. Not before I had walked through it!

    The main staircase was lit by this huge window which would have had the crests of the United Kingdom in each panel. Sadly most of this was on the floor by 2005

    Well, that's one place I'd have put money on getting demolished. Cheers for the update.
