Description:Cobridge Refractory works was off Gresham Street in Cobridge. This street and works have been demolished, but were just to the east of Forest Park Primary School.

The works has both bottle and beehive kilns, in front of which are stacks of saggars. There are heaps of refractory bricks, probably rejects, around the edge of the site. The clay pit which supplied the works was off to the right and is now on the edge of Central Forest Park. Faintly in the distance is the spoil tip of Sneyd Colliery.
