Stoke-on-Trent | The Potteries

I have a fondness for Stoke-on-Trent (because I studied at Keele Uni and met my wife at Makro near Newcastle-under-Lyme). Certain areas are both grim and beautiful. I love its honesty and unpretentiousness, and enjoy visiting the few surviving pottery factories (and the remains of those that have been left to ruin), which present a snap shot of bygone times. Forget the Caribbean – gimme a dose of reality!

    Some fantastic photos, there, Paul. Many parts of Longton, where a lot of those were taken, are the same as they've been for over 100 years.

    Great pictures. I would come in a van from Birmingham with my dad when I was maybe 9 or 10 this would be 1960 we would collect a van full of various wares from various potteries. It was such an adventure for me the girls in the tapping shop would shower me with sweets. We would have a stop and have a bag of chips. I only wish I had a camera then or my dad had taken some photos. Cheers JB
