Scotia Road

Scotia5

The first couple of hundred yards of Scotia Road is just inside the perimeter of this Project, where I am photographing all the streets/roads within half a mile of my flat in Tunstall. Scotia Road runs from Tunstall to Burslem, named after the Scotia River (stream would be a better description). This part is relatively new, built when Tunstall town centre was by-passed in the 1970’s, cutting through some housing and old factory buildings. No-one lives on this part which starts at a tree covered roundabout includes a very busy traffic lights, passes one side of the glorious Victorian Library, a car park, an old cinema now a bingo hall the police station and a long established ironmongers. Its overriding feature is the intensity of the traffic. It is a place all cities and towns have, a place hardly noticed by passers-by. Lower down was the very fine classical fronted building of one of Wedgwood’s factories sadly demolished for a shopping development.
