Ceramic bottle, made by Richard Nichols, around 1900 in Newton Heath and found at Murrays' Mills in Ancoats during the archaeological survey of the site.

This ceramic drinks bottle contained botanic beer manufactured by Richard Nichols in Newton Heath, Manchester. It was found at Murrays' Mills in Ancoats. Produced in Newton Heath and consumed in Ancoats, it demonstrates the dominance of the local economy.

Murrays’ Mills is one of the oldest surviving steam-powered cotton spinning mill complexes. First established in Ancoats in 1797, it became, along with neighbouring McConnel and Kennedy mills, one of the largest industrial complexes of its time, reflecting Ancoats’ development into the first industrial suburb.
