The Potteries Tile Trail

The Potteries Tile Trail celebrates tiles and architectural ceramics to be found in locations across Stoke-on-Trent. It aims to promote the city's historic built environment as well as its internationally significant tile and architectural ceramic industry.

The vast & growing collection is community and crowd sourced. It was originally established working in partnership with a volunteer research team of 'tile ambassadors' from Stoke-on-Trent & North Staffordshire. The wider local community and a national and international constituency of online contributors have shared their 'tile spots' both within the city and far beyond over the last five years. We hope you will GET IN TOUCH, share your photographs & help contribute to to this ever-growing online collection!
