Description:The Vulcan Works was operated by Swinnertons Ltd (a company linked with the neighbouring Alcock, Lindley & Bloore pottery). Between then two works is Slippery Lane.

The Vulcan Works dates from the early 1900s although the photograph shows the 1950s rebuild. The company specialised in table ware and lasted as an independent works until becoming part of Allied English Potteries (early 1960s)and later the Doulton group (from 1973).

Behind the works is the chimney of George Ashworth's Broad Street Pottery and the chimney further along belongs to Clementsons Millers. All these buildings have been demolished. This part of Clough Street was cut through by The Potteries Way and a large supermarket car park.
