Lane End  Staffordshire


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Lane End like this:

LANE-END and LONGTON, a township in Stoke-upon-Trent parish, and within Stoke-upon-Trent borough, Staffordshire; on the North Staffordshire railway, at the junction of the Hanley and the Silverdale branches, 2¾ miles SE of Stoke-upon-Trent. It contains the post, market, polling, and railway town of Longton. ...

Real property, £38,371; of which £400 are in mines, and £220 in iron-works. Pop. In 1851, 15,149; in 1861,16,690. Houses, 3,277. This township is part of the Potteries; it contained, toward the end of last century, no greater a seat of population than an obscure village; it acquired importance and wealth from vigorous working of the earthenware and porcelain manufacture; it possesses much coal, ironstone, brown limestone, with coloured marl, porcelain clay, and manganese; it presents a large aggregate of edificed area, with the features characteristic of the Potteries; and it has three churches, five dissenting chapels, several public schools, and other institutions. One of the churches is at Edensor; another is called St. James, Longton; and the third is called St. John, Lane-End. The last was rebuilt in 1792, and enlarged in 1827; and has a tower of about 1760. The living of it is a p. curacy in the diocese of Lichfield. Value, £280.* Patrons, Trustees. See Edensor and Longton.
