Longport: The 'Kingdom' of Davenport (1760's - mid 19th C))


 Milvale Street, the bakery and kilns



Location 18 on the index map

Factory on the right of Pidduck Street, next to bridge 125.

 This factory was a flour mill and later Price's bread factory.

Just out of sight further down the Trent & Mersey canal
 is the rear of the Burgess & Leigh factory.


On the left is an early 19th C calcining works with later additions.

 A grade 2 listed building (heritage no. 102A), brick and tiled roof, courtyard and kilns.

The canal is the Trent and Mersey and we are looking towards Etruria. 


next is the changing level of the Fowlea Valley
