James Brindley Way is probably the newest road in Tunstall, certainly the newest in this Streets Project taking in all the roads within half a mile of my flat. It is a long hill, a continuation of Reginald Mitchell Way bypassing Tunstall, cutting through some open land which is a mix of moorland, industrial wasteland and old clay pits. No-one lives on it, though at one end they have now built a pub/restaurant. It begins and ends at roundabouts, halfway along are turnoffs which are blocked off to proposed industrial estates, which hopefully will never be built and are used by taxis, police and so on for parking. The roadsides are full of wild flowers and grasses, the wasteland just left to grow wild and sometimes used by travellers to feed animals or very messily stop for short periods. The road is called after James Brindley one of the great 18th Century engineers who was central to the building of the local canals featured previously in this project to find out more http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Brindley.
