Views from Glebe Colliery Spoil Heap
from Glebe Colliery
the top of the grassed over coal spoil heap can be seen a good view of
the surrounding are of Fenton and some of the locations we have 'walked'
Pool Dole and the TV masts to the top right
with Buckley farm at the base of
the masts - to the left is the tower of Fenton
Cemetery, the road along the bottom is King
Street with the link road to the A50 dual carriageway.
more or less in the center is the Angel
public house and to the left of the pub is the Coalport
[Fenton Cemetery Chapel and Coalport Works have
now been demolished]
In the centre of the picture is Fenton's
Christchurch Church and to the right of that is the back of Fenton
Town Hall. Just above the body of the church can be seen the flats
along City Road.
On the other side we find Heron Cross - our
walk didn't take us along this area. At the bottom can be seen the
bottle kiln of Heron
Pottery in Chilton Street. At the top is the roundabout and Blurton
Road running to the north and left to right is the A50.
