Description:This photograph shows the Doulton Sanitary Potteries works which fronted into the Trent & Mersey Canal. The photograph was taken from the Whieldon Road bridge over the canal, looking southwards. The works was originally the Colonial Pottery operated by Winkle & Wood, earthenware manufacturers, from 1889. The pediment at this end of the building reads 1888, Winkle & Wood, Colonial Pottery. Doulton's moved sanitary ware production here from Burslem in the 1930s and continued until 1992. The works were demolished around 2000.

Just behind the camera is the Colonial Pottery canal basin.
