There isn’t much information regarding the Portland House that we could find. We do know that it was a public house, one of many in Longton. If you know of any historic information or any photographs, we would love you to share them with us. Please contact me with any information, interesting story’s and we would love to keep them alive for posterity.
We found some interesting artefacts whilst work commences. Not much of the original decor or traits of the Portland House remain, but these little snippets are reminiscent of an age gone by.
We are carefully taking out some old decor and fixtures from when it was the kitchen and bedroom business, not really much to see at the moment but check in next week and we’ll add more information as it happens.
Its all go and lots to do. Every square inch of the interior has to be stripped down, fixtures, fittings, everything. In the coming weeks we should see new partitions, state of the art decor and a total refit. All the bare bones of the building have to be exposed so we can realise the potential the building holds. So for now, there’s not much to see so check back soon.
