Diary Date: Little Longton Bottle Oven Bus Tour

Bottle Oven (Longton)

ONE OF LONGTON’S REMAINING BOTTLE OVENS

On Saturday, 25 August the Gladstone Pottery Museum is running the Little Longton Bottle Oven Bus Tour.

The tour through the town on a 1978 PMT double-decker bus is part of the museum’s Festival of Bottle Ovens.

Passengers on the bus will be taken to see most of the remaining bottle ovens in Longton and other historic buildings in the town.

Tours start at the Gladstone Pottery Museum and passengers can join the bus at 10.30am, 12noon, 2.00pm and 3.30pm. The tours are free although there will be a conductor on board who will act as your tour guide and introduce you to Longton’s heritage.
