5362 Former Coalport Chinaworks

SJ 6902 17/143 26.3.68


Circa 1792. John Rose started his chinaworks at Jackfield about 1790, and moved to
Coalport in about 1792. Three of the original brick kilns survive. These are
characteristically bottle-shaped of circular plan. Two of the kilns are complete
while the third is now truncated and only the base remains.
The adjacent and attached buildings are brick-built with tiled roofs, 2, 3 and
4-storeys, small-paned iron-framed casements in cambered head openings. Gabled plain
tile roofs with brick dentil eaves.
These chinaworks are an important survival.
