Trent and Mersey Canal near Mount Pleasant, Stoke-on-Trent
Trent and Mersey Canal near Mount Pleasant, Stoke-on-Trent
South of Whieldon Road Bridge (No 112) on the Trent and Mersey Canal. This wharf is long, and there were extensive collieries and iron works south and south-east of here. I would appreciate some guidance from a local industry historian regarding what was actually loaded onto the narrowboats from this wharf.

The canal is 93.5 miles in length from Derwent Mouth to Preston Brook. The first sod was cut by Josiah Wedgwood in July 1766 at Middleport (Stoke-on-Trent). It took eleven years to build. James Brindley was the engineer until his death in 1772.
