History of secrets, tunnels and ghosts

The Leopard, Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent, March 2021

Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

    • Sadly, yes. It has a great history but is in need of much care and attention. Much of the old building has been closed and uncared for for a long time and even the used areas need work. Let’s hope someone steps in and brings it back to life.

    • I was there for business this week. Had a quick wander around Burslem and Tunstall. I think you would be disappointed if you saw it now. It is desperately in need of money to rescue a lot of the buildings. Many have been closed for safety reasons. ☹️

      • It was always an odd mix of old and modern buildings. Some of them were in need of renovations decades ago. The area was heavily mined for coal in the past. I remember slag heaps all over the place. Most were “landscaped” and seeded with grass.


        • They should try to save something. It was a major part of the city in the past. They’re always keen to highlight the pottery production but I get the impression they’d like people to forget about the mining history.
