The Caldon Canal in 1972

Photo: Harry Arnold

My March 1972 issue of the IWA Bulletin carries this photograph of the Caldon Canal near Hazlehurst Junction, where its branch to Leek and main line to Froghall Basin diverge.

The Bulletin says that the line to Froghall was about to be restored.

I walked the whole of the Caldon over two days in the spring of 1988. The walk began in the centre of Stoke-on-Trent and took me to the Churnet Valley.

Part of this were so remote they carried the river, canal and a railway, but no road.
