Pottery, King Street ,Longton.
Steven Birks describes this thus - Pottery works. Dated 1819, with later additions and modifications. Brick with plain tiled roofs. Entrance range of 3 storeys, 5 bays with central projecting bay with segmentally arched way to rear with Palladian style window over, and Diocletian window above. Pediment with heavy modillion cornice and date stone. Flat-arched windows in flanking sections, with continuous sill bands. Lower ranges of 2 storeys and 6 bays to left and right.

The sign on the end points to Regal Pottery so I suppose this may be that works. The building on the extreme left is Phoenix Pottery that retains two bottle ovens.
