Considered by many as the beating heart of Stoke-on-Trent, Hanley has seen many shifts, changes, peaks and troughs over the decades - and despite a certain number of shortfalls in recent years, it's a place that's, without a shadow of a doubt, on the up.
Hanley’s history is quite amazing and paved with incredible people that have helped to steer the success of the city throughout time - and in celebration of that - here is a video showcasing how it’s morphed, chopped and changed over the years:
A nostalgic trip down memory lane, indeed, and the perfect way to introduce our Stoke-on-Trent ‘Voices’ project.
Inspired by the recent words of playwright and actor, Deborah McAndrew, in the coming weeks we will be sharing the stories, thoughts, feelings and opinions of the people of The Potteries - giving you a unique glimpse into the past, present and future of this intriguing pocket of the country.
If you’d like to share your own Stoke-on-Trent story with our audience and give your thoughts on the future of The Potteries, please do get in touch and we’ll be happy to consider you for ‘Voices’.
