Normacot Road, Longton
Normacot Road was once
an important thoroughfare from Normacot to Longton Town, it was lined with
many potworks and terrace houses.
Many of the houses and works
were demolished between the 1930's and the 1970's and the opening of the
A50 road in 1997 meant that the end of Normacot Road was sealed off - so
now it is a road to nowhere.
Nevertheless it is still a road worth walking along, it still contains
much to see and explore, it contains many hints of the past and 9 listed
buildings can be seen.
