public_access_description
Longton Hall was the first porcelain factory to be established in Staffordshire. As such, it should have been hugely successful. There were cheap local fuel and abundant technical expertise. But despite all these benefits it soon closed down. Management failings and an unsatisfactory porcelain formula were to blame for its untimely demise.
