Stoke-on-Trent Part II: Museums and the City

Walking around the city of Stoke, the empty factories and  bricked houses where the factory workers used to live let me a feeling of sadness and a sentimental view of what this place used to be. In some ways it seems a bit lost, a stagnant pond but there is possible change in the air with the Biennial, the Princes Trust support for Burleigh Pottery and the skilled work of the local artists potters .

The people were friendly and helpful,  the working class of the North with their traditional industry taken away putting a brave face on things.
