Full Description

SK 469430 Awsworth Road, site of Ilkeston Potteries. Single storey brick buildings here are the remains of late 19th century laundry buildings which were in turn built on the site of the mid-19th century Ilkeston Potteries. Some of the outbuildings may be parts of the Potteries. It is now Ilkeston Tile Centre. These limited residual buildings represent the only remains of a once substantial canal-side industrial area which included lime kilns and a flour mill site. (1) This was the site of Ilkeston Potteries between about 1807 and the early 1880s. Six bottle kilns are shown at the potteries on the OS map of 1881. By 1899 Ilkeston Laundry had been built on the site, possibly incorporating one or two of the pottery's outbuildings. A single storey building survives from the laundry. (2, 3)
