The track bed is on the right, rails concealed, but still in place looking towards Endon and Cauldon Low. The Caldon Canal (opened in 1779) is on the left, with new housing built circa 2008. The meadows are part of the River Trent floodplain. SJ9050 : Disused railway track bed near Milton, Stoke-on-Trent

The former North Staffordshire Railway line from Leek and Cauldon Low was opened in 1867, and the last freight was carried in 1988. Passenger service ceased in 1965. The track has never been taken up, and the route has recently been purchased by the Moorland and City Railways Company, who have already opened part of the line to Cauldon Low Quarry, and hope to join the main line at Stoke, thus reopening the line here at Milton.
