The tunnels where the Newcastle canal enters Stoke town c.1890

To the left are the imposing industrial buildings of Minton, with a long three-story building, rising to four storeys in the centre

This photo shows this location where the canal goes into two tunnels - one to the right into the Wolfe "Big Works" [at the time of this photo the works were operated by Adams] and one under Stoke town centre and onto the Trent and Mersey canal. Above the tunnels is the flint mill.
