Once you have left the urban sprawl of Stoke you are soon on one of the most beautiful stretches of canal I have ever been on. The two different dead end arms each have their own character, but especially the Froghall arm with the Churnet Valley railway. A few fantastic pubs can be visited, and their are some quaint villages... More

There is canalside regeneration on-going after you pass Hanley Park. Further on you leave the industrial landscape and progress through further housing to the countryside of Milton.

Thursday, September 17, 2009 It’s a clear, sunny morning in Chicago and the freeways outside our hotel window are crowded with people on their way to work. We’re here for the day as we get ready to board a plane for Manchester, England tonight. From Manchester, we’ll take a bus less than an hour to the town of Stoke-on-Trent, where... More
