After the huge roundabout with Reginald Mitchell Way, Chatterley Road drops down, flattens out and ends at a mini roundabout. To one side is the Genesis Centre with a huge green building behind oddly called Blue Planet which lay empty for 10 years but is now part of JCB, it looked like some spaceship had parked in the valley. The land is poor quality and near the end there is one of the many marl holes, where clay was dug for centuries, this is now a clay sided lake, returning to nature. Probably the most interesting place on the whole road is Harecastle Tunnel on the Trent and Mersey Canal, built between 1766 and 1777, 250 years ago this must have been a hive of industry where the navvies lived, bricks made, horses and machinery needed. The tunnel and canal made Stoke-on-Trent carrying the pottery safely to Liverpool for export. I won’t go into it deeply but local historian Fred Hughes has a blog about it that is well worth reading. There is supposed to be a ghost in the tunnel, The Kidsgrove Boggart, a woman whose head was cut off by her husband and I am sure you can easily find more about that on the internet, it’s sort of made for such twaddle!
