A Tour of Stoke-on-Trent: Life In A Northern Town

This amused us while writing the panorama section of the Digital Geography book and looking for urban images: A Drive around Stoke-on-Trent.

Take in the wonders of the Lidl (a low cost supermarket), the local kebab house and the town incinerator amongst others. A few days ago we talked about Earthmine and a new kind of map, to be honest we cant see them driving around Stoke anytime soon:

Life in an Northern Town, as Dream Academy once sung, which can now rather helpfully be found on YouTube.

Although the drive around Stoke is a bit grim there is something about it that almost celebrates the English town.

Thanks go to the D'log blog for posting the link.
