Westport Road, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent
next: The restoration of Wood's Works in 2000
Westport Road runs from Fountain Square (end of Market Place) in Burslem town centre down to the junction of Davenport Street and Brownhills Road. Westport Road was originally Liverpool Road - it was renamed in the early 1950's.
In the early early 1800's this road was indeed the road, through Tunstall and onto the North and Liverpool - where pottery ware was transported to America.
On Westport Road there are three listed buildings: the remaining part of the Wood's factory, part of the Hill Top Sunday School and the facade of Wades Hill Top works.
