Factories and workshops on the right are behind terraced housing in Pyenest Street. I think the two butties are those which used to be pushed around between workshops by the grey tug (then with a motor) with loads of pottery right up into 1990s, possibly even later.

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.
