North Staffordshire’s History and Heritage

Since 1990, our historical geographer Betty Cooper and her husband international heritage lawyer David Martin have undertaken significant original research into North Staffordshire’s history and architectural heritage.

Born in The Rookery, Betty was educated at Brownhills High School in Tunstall and at Manchester University where she wrote her thesis on the economic development of The Potteries.

Betty’s researches enabled her to produce the first map of medieval Tunstall, which was a market town and administrative centre surrounded by six fields.

Over the years, Betty and David have written extensively about North Staffordshire and some of their articles will be posted on this page.
