New Hall Works from an 1898 OS map
New Hall Works at the junction of Great York Street, New Hall Street and Marsh Street.

"The entire front of the New Hall works was purchased by Henry Hall, metal mounter of jugs, teapots, etc., so that the manufactory became divided into two distinct properties. The portion occupied by Messrs. Booth, having been burnt down, was rebuilt. Their productions were the usual classes of ordinary earthenware in printed, painted, enamelled, and gilt services; stoneware, in which a large variety of jugs and teapots were made; and jasper ware. 
They were succeeded in their business in about 1870 by Ambrose Bevington & Co., who continued the manufacture to about 1890."
