Hanley Removal Company
Hanley is one of the six Potteries towns that in 1910 merged together to form what is now the city of Stoke-on-Trent. Unlike the other towns though, which have primarily formed suburban residential districts, Hanley has actually effectively become Stoke’s city centre, with most shops being concentrated in the area. In some instances, the name Hanley has actually been dropped due to fact that the area is so synonymous with being the city centre.
During the peak of industry in Stoke, Hanley was best known for its coal mining. The Hanley Deep Pit, opened in 1854, was the deepest in the region and at the height of its productivity in the early 20th century employed approximately two-thousand men and boys. The mine closed in 1962; eventually there was a removal of the mining infrastructure, and it was redeveloped into Hanley’s Central Forest Park, which is in the north of the area.
The closure of the mines undoubtedly caused big employment issues at the time, but nowadays Hanley undoubtedly benefits from the investment in the area which has helped make it the primary economic and cultural hub of the city of Stoke-on-Trent. Office and retail space are in abundance, and the shopping centres create a considerable amount of jobs. Outside of retail, some of the largest businesses include The Davies Group, an insurance claims company, and Emma Bridgewater, the ceramics company.
Property Market – Moving Home
Hanley, like most of the six Stoke towns, has a very low-value property market. The average house price in the town is £102,885, though that may be in part due to the generally small property sizes and is not necessarily a reflection of house quality; for example, a four-bedroom house costs £209,111, which is obviously double the overall average. Nonetheless, £209,111 is still lower than the national average property price. The average rent is £446 per month in Hanley. The most expensive streets in the town are Newton Street, Etruria Road and Watersedge Grove.
Hanley moving Demographics
The 2011 Census found that Hanley has a population of 6,719. The average household contains 2.3 people, and the mean age is only 34, which is considerably below the national average age of 40. 21% of the population were born in countries outside of the UK or Europe, meaning that the area actually has a relatively high level of ethnic diversity. Over a third of the adult population in Hanley have no formal qualifications.
Moving to Hanley – Removal Company
As Hanley is seen as quite a central hub within Stoke-on-Trent, it offers more in the way of culture and leisure than perhaps the other Potteries towns. For example, there is the Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, which features a restored Spitfire plane. The Victoria Hall and Regent Theatre are both venues for performances of varying kinds, while the Emma Bridgewater Factory provides tours of a working pottery factory and also allows children to decorate their own. There is also an intu shopping centre in Hanley, the same group that has the Trafford Centre in Manchester. Hanley is the venue for the annual LGBT festival, Stoke Pride.
