Bottle Kilns Revealed

Our time-lapse system sited in Normacot, Stoke-on-Trent captured the demolition of the former Enson works. We recorded the demolition with a high capture rate in order to collect sufficient images to provide a thorough time-lapse film of the process. The demolition revealed the four Grade II listed ‘bottle kilns’ or ‘bottle ovens’ which lay inside the site. As the picture below (taken from our remote viewer) shows, the distinctively shaped structures, which are a part of England’s industrial heritage, are now set against the horizon to present quite a striking scene.

Stoke-on-Trent City Council are now working with their construction contractors to erect a new landmark building, which the kilns will sit within. We will be time-lapsing the construction of this building too, every step along the way, from commencement of the groundworks to completion in Autumn 2011.
