Shearer Street Bridge (No 3) is just out of sight round the bend. Many of the old factory buildings and workshops are being demolished in this area of Stoke, regeneration of the land being very extensive. I think the butty (unpowered narrowboat) is one of those which used to be worked between pottery workshops right into the 1990s and possibly even later.

SJ8746 : Caldon Canal near Shelton, Stoke-on-Trent

The Caldon Branch of the Trent and Mersey Canal opened in 1779. It runs eighteen miles from Etruria in Stoke-on-Trent, where it leaves the Trent and Mersey Canal. It terminates at Froghall about five miles south-east of Cheddleton. The canal has seventeen locks and the 69 metre long very low Froghall Tunnel, unusable by many narrowboats. The canal did originally continue through to Uttoxeter, but the section beyond Froghall was closed by the mid 1840s, much of its course being filled in to construct a railway.
