Tram lines discovered in Stoke

Over 85 years since they were last used a small section of tram track has been uncovered during roadworks in Stoke-on-Trent. The tracks were discovered under Trinity Street in Hanley – where trams last ran in 1928 – and they will now be photographed by Stoke-on-Trent City Council archaeologists before they are removed to allow the roadworks to be completed.

One Response to Tram lines discovered in Stoke

  1. John Atkinson says:

    in addition to tram track appearing in Trinity Street Hanley Stoke-on-Trent track has also appeared in Albion Square Hanley as a result of repaving the area between the main shopping centre and the new bus station. When the Potteries Electric Traction company originally laid the track it was laid to the cheapest standard possible within the current Stoke-on-Trent area.
    Note I do have photographs of the track in situ and being lifted by the contractors in October 2013.
