Abandoned bottle oven

The old JH Weatherby Factory, at the north end of Hanley, is in dereliction after closing in 2000; and none of the plans for it has come to fruition, so it just sits, decaying.

Through its gates, you can see the bottle oven that dominates the courtyard. It's not sure what will happen to that either.

  1. Presumably it will eventually fall into disrepair? What a shame that it can't be converted into something practical and still retain it's historical value.
