A brief history of Stoke on TrentA brief history of Stoke on Trent

The history of Stoke is quite rich. And if you want to experience the remains of the great industrial revolution, know that Stoke was among the cities that were on the front line. Thanks to the well-preserved history of Stoke, one can have a closer look through the many museums that still preserve the remains of the initial days of industrialization. Stoke may not have the reputation it has today during that time, but it was the land that saw it all.

However, in the year 1910, Stoke on Trent was formed by the federation of six towns (the reason it is known to be polycentric). The city took its name from Stoke-upon-Trent. This was where the district's central railway station was located and the main centre of government. Hanley is the chief profitable and commercial centre. The other four towns are Fenton, Longton (where the central Queen park is located), Burslem, and Tunstall.

An early suggestion for an alliance happened in 1888 when an adjustment was made to the government bill. According to the amendment, the city would be made which will have six towns within the country of "Staffordshire Potteries." On April 1st, 191-, The six towns were brought together and were given the name of Stoke on Trent. It was not until April 1st 1910, that the "Six Towns" were brought together.
