Reinvention

On our way home from Scotland recently we stopped off for lunch at Middleport Pottery near Stoke on Trent.  As an aside, the cafe was recommended in an excellent book “The Extra Mile” which we picked up earlier that day at a very good and unusual service station, “Cairn Lodge”.

Having had our lunch by the canal, and had a mooch around the pottery and shops, we had a little wander and came across Harper Street.  My husband and I were both drawn to investigate further:

Whilst I love the street as it is, we were glad to see that, rather than sitting empty, Harper Street is going to be redeveloped and repurposed in a way to pay homage to the industrial past and present of the area
