Walking to town 1 – The Secret Way

This is the first of 4 posts illustrating the four ways I walk into Tunstall, Stoke-on-Trent – each will begin at my flat and finish at the clock tower in Tower Square.

This first is what I call The Secret Way, as I remember a friend who would have been arrested had the police seen her used to use this way, keeping her off the main road. This route (about half a mile) goes through the ‘backs’ and alleyways, crossing side streets, between buildings. On my way I passed things that have featured previously on here like gates, walls, piles of rubbish, the Venus de Tunstall, the old Doulton factory, a home painted ‘sports’ centre, attempts to improve the area, narrow passages, interesting corners. There are 44 images in black and white which seemed to fit the subject matter, all to a 10×8 format. Click them to enlarge. The journey begins in my back yard and The Tree just outside the gate…
