Havelock Works, Slippery Street, off Broad Street, Hanley

"At these works in Broad Street, Mrs. J. Massey, formerly of Mayer Street, made earthenware jugs,
teapots and general majolica in about 1882."
Jewitt's Ceramic Art of Great Britian 1800-1900 
note: the directories give the name as Mary Massey not J. Massey.


  • Trade directories record Mrs. Mary Massey at Mayer Street Works in 1879 & 1880 and then at Broad Street (Havelock Works) in 1882. 

  • c.1891 George Hall & Thomas Hulme were earthenware manufacturers at Havelock Works, Broad Street, Hanley.

  • It appears that the works were at one time called the Kensington Pottery - in a 1907 directory A. Bullock & Co. operated as earthenware manufacturers at the Kensington Pottery, Slippery Street. 

  • The 1924 OS map identifies this factory as the Havelock Works - it is shown as such until at least 1950.
