Walking along Stoke Road to Snow Hill
The short walk along Stoke Road from the Winton pottery buildings to Snow Hill reveals buildings and features which demonstrate the key history of the area.
The Ridgway family owned a large portion of the land in this area and as a large pottery manufacturer, estate owner and John Ridgway being the first mayor of Hanley Borough they put their mark on Stoke Road, Shelton.
