Ouseburn, Lime Street Pottery
Pottery Manufacturing Site
Shown on the 2nd edition Ordnance Survey map of 1898. Annotated as "Lime Street Pottery" on a 1:500 map of same date. The pottery, at 5 Lime Street, is listed as being run by J.R. Forster, earthenware manufacturer in Ward's Directory of 1892. By the 1920s there was a Roman Catholic Church on this site, with a boy's club, gym and boxing ring. Although the site is cleared, sandstone retaining walls survive in the bank to the rear.
