Date:June 1964

Description:The view west along Birches Head Road from just before the Caldon Canal. The parapets of the canal bridge are in the centre of the photograph. Just beyond is the level crossing over the Biddulph Valley/Stoke to Leek railway branch line. The crossing house is partly hidden in the clump of trees. There is an old "level crossing" road sign on the left, before the canal.

The open land just beyond the railway and canal would become the new site of Birches Head High School (Birches Head Academy). The buildings in the photograph are now part of The Bridge Centre.
