It was situated at the junction of Pinfold Lane and the Mold-Queensferry Trunk road. It was established in the early 19th century by Charles Davison. Later, it passed to the Hurlbutt family. They established another works at Old Ewloe and also owned the Etna and Globe brickworks. Later the works were owned by Messrs Stein and The General Refactory Company. Both this and the Old Ewloe Works survived until the 1970s.


This drawing illustrates the working of the tramway system. Square waggons loaded with clayware are passed along the kiln floor to a railway siding. The traverser waggon travels along the sunken platform. It can deposit a laden box to any railway waggon standing along the ramp.
