SJ8744 : Portmeirion bottle ovens

taken 29 years ago, near to Stoke-on-Trent, Great Britain

Portmeirion bottle ovens.
Portmeirion bottle ovens.
Falcon Works, Sturgess Street. Formerly W H Goss. The actual oven is relatively small and contained within the distinctive hovel. Several survivors are now free standing but it was normal for them to be contained within a building at the base. There is a good intact example at the Moorcroft pottery, Cobridge.

These are now (2016) in pristine condition having had thousands of pounds spent on them.
