More gates a theme running through the past year! These I have seen for 20+ years. They are entrances to the demolished tile factory which was huge and a big local employer. Don’t we still need tiles? For the past 10 years it has been a flattened area just used by fun fairs when they come. Stoke-on-Trent must be 50% derelict land, which shows its poverty, in London these spaces would be crammed with new housing no-one could afford. There has been some minor cropping on the top image, but very little else, the strong winter morning sunlight was on Friday as I walked up Brownhills Road from Middleport to Tunstall.
