Fenton, Staffordshire

Factory Shop of Kings Street

Fenton is one of the potteries towns in Stoke on Trent. Fenton is an industrial area and has lots of buildings which were used for the manufacturing of pottery. The river Trent was very important for this as were the canal networks for the movement of the pottery. Sadly many buildings are derelict, but there is much regeneration going on in Stoke on Trent. The surrounding area is residential, many terraced houses were built for the pot bank workers.
