SITE 14. SJ284639

1815 (William Hancock); 1860; 1871; 1886. The site of the kilns and other pottery buildings is now occupied by the Catholic Church and private houses and gardens. Some of the smaller buildings have survived incorporated into the modern structures (e.g. the pottery office on Brunswick Road is now the offices of the Ministry of Social Security). The dump lies to the north of the site, the southern edge of it occupied by an early twentieth century terrace. When the northern part of the dump was threatened by the construction of a housing estate road, it was decided to excavate a small area in order to collect a sample of wares manufactured on the site. This was carried out from November 1974 to January 1975, jointly by the Flintshire Historical and Chester Archaeological Societies and the Buckley Society under the direction of the writer and S. R.Williams (report forthcoming).

A large quantity of domestic and industrial pottery and stoneware was recovered.
