Town Halls and Markets

Betty Cooper and David Martin are writing a series of booklets about Stoke-on-Trent’s heritage town halls and markets.

The booklets will introduce readers to the town halls and markets in:

  • Tunstall
  • Burslem
  • Hanley
  • Stoke
  • Fenton
  • Longton

As well as looking at the architectural history of the city’s heritage town halls and market halls, the booklets will contain short “family histories” of well-known market traders whose families have been stallholders in local markets for many years.

There will be descriptions of the markets as they are today along with details of the stalls and the range of products sold.

The first booklets in the series will be about Tunstall town hall and market.
