Heritage & Nature in The Potteries

Note: The date of this event is incorrect in the printed SoT HODs brochure.

As part of the national Heritage Open Days festival, join Potteries Heritage Society's Andy Perkin and Ecologist Nicola Farrin to explore heritage and nature in The Potteries, from the industrial revolution to industrial decline and enviromental reclaimation. The guided walk will follow the Caldon and Trent & Mersey Canals to Stoke and return along the valley of the River Trent (around 3 miles in total).

Guided Heritage Canoe Trail - Northwood to Stockton Brook

Follow the Caldon Canal as it traces the River Trent back towards its source, departs the city, through historic, industrial and suburban hinterland and into the rural tranquillity of the moorlands.

Your guide for the voyage will be Potteries Heritage Society’s Andy Perkin, a canals enthusiast since childhood and avid kayaker, who has contributed the heritage content for the Heritage Canoe Trail booklet.
