Why Move to Stoke on Trent?
Home of the ceramics industry in the UK, Stoke-on-Trent, or The Potteries as it likes to be known, is a city in Staffordshire. Covering 36 square miles, along with its neighbours Newcastle-under-Lyme and Staffordshire Moorlands, the region forms North Staffordshire.
In the 13th Century, North Staffordshire was a centre for coal mining. When coal mining was nationalised in 1947, about 20,000 men worked in the industry in Stoke-on-Trent. During the 1700’s many high-end ceramic companies were established in the town, Royal Doulton, Spode and Wedgwood to name a few.
Travelling around the region couldn’t be more convenient, the M6, takes you close to Manchester, Liverpool and beyond. The main railway line links to Manchester in only 45 minutes, Birmingham in just 55 minutes and London in a little over an hour as well as having links south to Oxford and Bournemouth.
In its efforts to become greener city which is less reliant on cars many cycle routes have been introduced including a new canal side cycle route. Specifically built to provide a picturesque, traffic-free route from Stoke-on-Trent to the heart of the Peak District at a cost of £4m to Staffordshire Council.
If you want to get out of Stoke and enjoy some stunning Staffordshire countryside which surrounds it, you can head to the Peak District National Park, just a 40-minute drive away.
The cost of property is almost half that of Birmingham and Manchester which makes Stoke-on-Trent an affordable place to live and work. Living in Stoke gives people a good quality of life along with inexpensive housing and the added benefit of being located very close to two very diverse and vibrant cities.
