City Road, Fenton 

of Fenton

The Baker family of potters occupied the factories along the present City road since at least the beginning of the 19thC. 
They were probably responsible for this row of early cottages adjoining it on the lower side.

The triangular development centred around Victoria Place was a later housing development of the Bakers.

City Road, Fenton

Cottages built by the Baker pottery family, the cottages are directly in front of one of the Baker factories.
