Description:This photograph was taken from the Heath House Lane bridge over the Stoke to Leek and Biddulph branch line. The camera is looking south in what Bert Bentley described as "putrid light". On the left is the spoil tip at Berry Hill. Bucknall and Northwood Station is just under a mile down the track.

The houses, in block named Trent Terrace, were built between 1900 and 1920, many with a toilet at the bottom of the garden. It must have been washing day.
