  on St. John's Square

The layout of central Burslem today still has the street plan of a medieval market town. The area of St. John's Square can be seen on a 1720 map.

Arnold Bennett in his novels used The Potteries, especially Burslem as a thinly disguised location. He re-named St. John's Square to St. Luke's Square.
