Waterways of Stoke-on-Trent - Newcastle
NEWCASTLE UNDER LYME CANAL ROUTE
The tunnels were the canal enters Stoke town
Red square on the 1898 map shows this location where the canal goes into two tunnels - one into the Wolfe Street pottery works and one under Stoke town centre and onto the Trent and Mersey canal.
Above the tunnels is a flint mill - to the left are the imposing industrial buildings of Minton, with a long three-storyed building, rising to four storeys in the centre.
