Machin Street in Tunstall runs across the heart of the terraces in Tunstall towards the old Loop Line which is now a walkway. Machin Street begins at what used to be called Bath Street close to the Library and after a slow incline drops steeply towards the old railway. It’s a messy mix of all sorts of mainly Victorian terraced houses and packed with parked cars all day. These photographs as part…

One end has been blocked off so it is not a ‘rat run’.  These were taken quite a few months ago.
