    Has everyone in Stoke missed this?


    Work has begun to refurbish a former teaching institute which has been listed as one of the most at-risk Victorian buildings in England.

    The derelict Wedgwood Institute, in Burslem, is being restored at a cost of more than £850,000, using grant money.

    Not missed it, been to look at it dozens of times and it's always been super tight.

    There's quite a few bits and pieces around Burslem alone worth keeping an eye on. This, the old Co-Op Emporium next door, Argyle works down the road.

    Like Speed says, Stoke is full of stuff. It also seems to have a habit lately of being well secured. I give everything a good looking at regularly though to see if anything changes. Just wish I had more time, as I'm sure there have been many missed opportunities.
