Thomas Twyford already had the Bath Street Works in Hanley, when in 1879 he built new works in Cliff Vale for the production of sanitary ware. The factory was designed by Robert Scrivener and was ideally situated, with the Trent and Mersey Canal along its northern side, railway sidings constructed on the other and the main road to the front.
