We went up to see my parents in Stoke-on-Trent just after Christmas. We arrived a bit early, so we went to the Gladstone Pottery Museum. Well, we tried to, but it was closed.
Here are its old potbanks – these used to be all over Stoke but now most of them have been demolished now that most pottery is made overseas.
We went to the canal instead.
There are lots of interesting canal signpost/sculptures along here.
There was an old railway line crossing the canal here, which is now a footpath.
I love these trees and the shapes they make, especially the negative shapes between the branches.
The ducks were enjoying themselves.
