Originally opened in 1848, Stoke-on-Trent Station sees over 3 million passengers come through its doors every year. The Grade II listed Victorian building lines one side of the city’s Winton Square which has the accolade as being England’s only square designed wholly by a railway company - the North Staffordshire Railway Company, to complement the station building. Quite rightly proud of its grand facade, the designer John Jay created all four sides of Winton Square in the same Jacobean style.
Winton Square is also home to a statue of Josiah Wedgwood, the 18th-century master potter born in Stoke, who went on to found the world-famous Wedgewood pottery company, firmly marking Stoke-on-Trent on the international map.
