Caldon Canal, Hanley
Caldon Canal, Hanley
This is looking towards the junction with the Trent & Mersey Canal main line from the Stoke Road bridge. The Caldon Canal was originally opened in 1779 as an outlet for limestone quarried in the Froghall area. Like many canals it suffered a slow decline and might easily have disappeared altogether had it not been for the efforts of local volunteers which led to a full restoration for navigation in 1974.
