Smallthorne Swimming Baths by Mervyn Edwards

In Arthur Berry’s autobiographical work, “A Three and Severnpence Ha’penny Man” (1984), the author recalls that in 1930s, his Uncle Sam had “read that the Council was going to build a big open-air swimming pool at the top of the hill”. In fact the open-air swimming baths at the top of Moorland Road were build by the colliery employees of the Burslem Recreations Ltd, a private company formed by the directors of the Sneyd Colliery Ltd.
