Marlhole

As part of my Streets Project I photographed a local marl hole back in April. As we had had a bit of snow last week and it had turned to icy lines, I thought it may be interesting to revisit the site, about half a mile away. I didn’t find what I was looking for, however the teazles looked great against the snow as did the clay in the bright winter sun. Marl holes are where clay (marl) for centuries had been dug for the pottery industry and one of the reasons North Staffordshire became centre of that industry. They are dotted around the area, deep, cold and dangerous.
