From Stone Base, head north. When you arrive in the metropolitan area of Stoke, you can go shopping in the Hanley area or visit one of the other 5 districts. This town is famous for its pottery. Cruise through the town of Kidsgrove, an upper town in central England. Here, too, you can admire typical British architecture. Stop for lunch or a stroll around the town centre. Next on your itinerary is the small town of Marple. Marple is part of what is called Greater Manchester. In addition, the Peak Forest Canal, which is only 2.13 metres wide, is located in this town. From Marple you can take a trip to Manchester. This city of half a million people is about 20 km away from Marple. Manchester is more of an industrial city, yet it boasts stately buildings from the Victorian era, such as the Manchester Town Hall. If you're a fan of futuristic architecture, you'll love the local glass buildings.
