Description:Alfred Meakin's Newfield Pottery stood on High Street between Tunstall and Sandyford in the area known as Newfield. Just to the right of the photograph were Newfield Sidings, at the end of the Newfield Branch off the Loop Line.

Newfield Pottery was originally in the hands of William Adams, later W H Grindley and after 1930, Alfred Meakin & Co. who added it to their existing Royal Albert, Victoria and Highgate works.
The works were put up for sale in the early 1980s. Most of the site was cleared although parts of teyh frontages in the centre of the photograph still stand as part of Newfield Industrial Estate.
