Course of disused railway near Bucknall, Stoke-on-Trent
Seen from a narrowboat on the canal, this line, opened in 1849 and closed in 1988, still has the track in place on the embankment among the trees and other undergrowth. Re-opening soon from Stoke to Leek, and also Cauldon Low Quarry, is planned by the newly formed Moorland and City Railways Co. The eight mile section to the quarry is already in use.
