Removal Company Burslem
Burslem is one of six town that in 1910, through the Local Government Provisional Order (No. 3) Confirmation Act, amalgamated to form Stoke-on-Trent. Burslem is in the north of Stoke-on-Trent, which itself is in the north of Staffordshire. The West Coast Main Line railway separates Burslem from neighbouring Newcastle-under-Lyme, and the Trent and Mersey Canal also runs through the area. The nearest train station is Longport., just a few minutes’ drive from Burslem.
Burslem is mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Book and describes the settlement at that point in time as a small farming hamlet. The pottery industry, for which the area is known, can be traced back to the 12th century. Until the middle of the 18th century, Burslem was a rather isolated settlement, due to the lack of a navigable river and a poor road network. The construction of the Trent and Mersey Canal alleviated these issues somewhat. The area of this canal that stretches through Burslem has been noted for being a particularly significant heritage site, due to the abundance of pottery-industry-related features along the route. The town also is the site of Britain’s last operational industrial district, being one in which all the workers live within a walk of the factory that they work at.
The dominance of the pottery industry in Burslem has declined greatly, but it can be argued that there has been a renaissance in recent years. Freelance creative companies have continued more small-scale pottery work, as well as working in other artistic fields such crafts. Like many high streets, Burslem High Street has struggled against the increasing preference for online shopping, and this has been compounded by the development of out-of-town shopping centres nearby. Nonetheless, several bars and restaurants are present and reflect a strong night-time economy. More business parks continue to be built in the area, providing offices, storage warehouses and commercial space in general to generate further growth for Burslem.
A house in Burslem tends to be highly affordable. The average asking price is only £106,007 according to Zoopla, which less than half the national average house price. The average price for a one-bedroom flat costs £59,158, while a three-bedroom house on average costs £125,366.
The town of Burslem had a population of 11,314 in 2011, and this is likely to have risen slightly since. There is a notable immigrant population in the area, as only 84.9% of residents are native to England. The average age in the town is 36, which is considerably below the national average of 40 and thus suggests that the town has a relatively youthful population.
As mentioned, the Burslem stretch of the Trent and Mersey Canal is a great visit for anyone with an interest in Burslem’s past. Another attraction with a similarly long history is a pub! The Leopard Inn dates back to the 1700s and remains in use today; the building is Listed, although the back half of it is abandoned and said to be haunted. The Burslem School of Art has been refurbished in recent years and runs regular galleries and events which are usually free.
