Description:The factory in the foreground is the Michelin Tyre factory. This photograph was taken from Rookery Lane in Trent Vale, looking north east towards Berryhill and Fenton. To the left is the cooling tower of the works power station and on the right is the factory water tower. This was built in the late 1920s and demolished in 1967. Standing over 100 feet high, it stored over 40,000 gallons of water. In between are the warehouse, production and administrative buildings.
The conical spoil tip in the far distance belonged to Berryhill Colliery. Beyond is the higher ground of Werrington and the Moorlands.
