Stoke-on-Trent is a linear conurbation in North Staffordshire, being a polycentric urban agglomeration that comprises the formerly distinct towns of Burslem, Hanley, Tunstall, Longton, Fenton and Stoke-on-Trent, which came together to form a federated county borough in 1910. This means that Stoke is composed of a number of formerly distinct settlements that now form one large urban area.
As well as the six towns, Stoke-on-Trent also has several suburbs, some of which include Abbey Hulton, Baddeley Green, Norton le Moors, Bentilee, Shelton, Birches Head, Bucknall, Bradeley, Caverswall, Chell, Trent Vale, Cliffe Vale, Etruria, Smallthorne, Fegg Hayes, Blurton, Heron Cross, Meir, Normacot, Meir Park, Meir Hay, Meir Heath, Middleport, Hartshill, Milton, Cobridge, Penkhull, Sneyd Green, Trentham, Adderley Green and Weston Coyney.
Stoke-on-Trent House Prices & Redevelopment
According to the Stoke-on-Trent Zed Index, compiled by Zoopla, house price inflation in Stoke-on-Trent currently stands at 3.73%. However, this is an average price and masks area related discrepancies. In some areas house prices are increasing by around 10%, while in other areas prices are falling at a similar rate. It is hoped that this somewhat modest level of house price appreciation will be able to withstand the inevitable rise in interest rates, an occurrence that is appearing more and more imminent.
There are planned or ongoing rejuvenation works centred on the Burslem Building, the Central Business District, Smithfield, Waterside and the University Quarter. Stoke Town is intended to be developed into a vibrant quarter of Stoke-on-Trent City Centre to become the ‘western quarter’ of the City Centre spine.
Stoke-on-Trent Culture, Attractions & Things to Do
Important landmarks, sightseeing destinations and sites of particular interest in Stoke-on-Trent include: the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Hanley, Etruria Industrial Museum on the Caldon Canal, Gladstone Pottery Museum, the Wedgwood Museum visitor centre in the firm’s factory in Barlaston, the Dudson Centre in Hanley, Burleigh – the world’s oldest working Victorian pottery, Royal Stafford in Burslem, the disused Chatterley Whitfield Colliery, which has Ancient Monument status, the Elizabethan Ford Green Hall Museum in Smallthorne, Trentham Gardens and Trentham Monkey Forest (both technically in Stafford). The Alton Towers Resort, 10 miles east of Stoke-on-Trent, and the Waterworld indoor swimming complex on Festival Park are both significant tourist attractions in the area.
Stoke-on-Trent boasts several local parks. Burslem Park is one of the largest registered Victorian parks in the country; Park Hall Country Park in Weston Coyney is a National Nature Reserve, and its sandstone canyons are a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Hartshill Park in Stoke is also a nature reserve, and Bucknall Park is home to the City Farm. Westport Lake in Longport is the largest body of water in Stoke-on-Trent and also constitutes a nature reserve.
Due to the general decline in the British manufacturing sector in the final quarter of the 20th Century, Stoke-on-Trent, like many other areas in the country, was forced to diversify its economic base. There are large Sainsbury’s and Co-Operative Pharmacy warehouses in Stoke, the tyre company Michelin has been based there since the 1920s, Vodafone maintains a large call centre in the city amd Bet 365 and Phones4U both have their main bases in Stoke-on-Trent, the city of their conception. The head office of the UK subsidiary of Fuchs Petrolub has a factory in Hanley, as does Godwin Steel Castings; Mr Kipling’s products are produced by Premier Foods in Trent Vale and Hanley’s nightlife entertainment industry is increasingly popular year on year.
The biggest employer in the city is Stoke-on-Trent City Council, and the University Hospital of North Staffordshire employs 7,000 staff. Retail also contributes significantly to the local economy and Potteries Shopping Centre in Hanley is the city’s largest shopping centre. Festival Park is a large retail and business park in Etruria, built on the former Garden Festival site, and there are also retail parks in Tunstall, Fenton and Longton. A new retail park is being built in Longton and a new shopping centre is due to open in Hanley in 2016.
Stoke-on-Trent Tradition & History
The name Stoke comes from the Old Englsh word Stoc, which was a generic name generally equating to ‘place’. The suffix ‘on-Trent’ was thus added in order to distinguish Stoke from other towns, areas and places. Widely known by the nickname ‘The Potteries’, Stoke’s history as a centre for industrial-scale pottery manufacturing dates back to the early 18th Century, though the abundance of clay, salt, lead and coal in the area means that the industry itself is older than that. World famous ceramics companies such as Wedgwood, Portmeirion, Aynsley, Emma Bridgewater, Burleigh and Moorcroft still thrive in the area and Stoke has incorporated pottery as an integral part of its tourism industry.
According to the historical record, coal mining in Stoke-on-Trent goes back to at least the 13th Century and so, unsurprisingly, the area was at the forefront of the widespread economic boom that defined the Industrial Revolution. By the time it was nationalised in 1947, over twenty thousand people were employed in the coal industry but, by the late 20th Century, the long moribund industry finally ceased when the Trentham Superpit closed in 1994. The steel and iron industries were also significantly represented in Stoke-on Trent. Stoke’s high profile industrial history has led to recent calls from the Pheonix Trust for the area to be designated a World Heritage Site.
