‘Price and Kensington’ 2

Pencil drawing of a Pot Bank along the side of a canal.

This second drawing of Price and Kensington is looking up the Trent and Mersey canal, the canal was used by barges which were loaded with ware and taken around the country, It was also used to bring in kaolin (china clay) to the various pottery manufacturers.

As well as pottery the canal was used by other industries to get their raw materials and to move other goods about in large volumes.

Nowadays, hardly any freight is carried on the canal, but it is a main link between so many of the other canals that are used for pleasure boating.

Price and Kensington was founded in 1896 by the Price brothers, they produced earthenware, specializing in table top accessories and teapots.
