Stoke-on-Trent is made up of six towns with six different centres; Burslem, Fenton, Hanley, Longton, Stoke and Tunstall. Five of these six towns have beautiful Victorian parks. And because of the areas affinity with the pottery industry ‘Stokies’ are commonly known as ‘Potters’. Here’s everything you need to know about buying, selling and letting houses in Stoke-on-Trent.
The area’s connection with the manufacturing of ceramic goods, for the tables of the world, continues into the local housing stock. As many of the beautiful late Victorian and Edwardian terraced houses were originally built as workers houses. With many featuring Minton tile floors, feature fireplaces and signature tiling to the façades. Beyond this, there were two periods of development across suburban areas around Stoke in 1930s and 1980s, where there was a focus on semi-detached family homes. And more recently Stoke has seen a focus on ‘executive detached’ family homes.
Sandwiched between Shrewsbury and Stoke-on-Trent, along the banks of the Shropshire Union Canal, is the delightful market town of Market Drayton. Here’s everything you need to know if you’re considering selling, buying or letting in this beautiful corner of North Shropshire.
