Blood Creek – Stoke on Trent

Author tch0rt - Last updated: 15.01.2013

The area known as Cockster Brook is a wild park bordered by Longton South, Blurton, and the A50.

The Brook itself is now culverted under the A50 where it eventually reaches a processor and the slide.

The culvert starts out with an 8foot corrugated metal pipe and gains a reinforcement ledge at each side around 300m in and then becomes RCP, some of the corrugated metal is rotten and looks like it’s just waiting to shred someones waders

It’s not until you come out that you find out why it’s called Blood Creek as the mixture of rust and filth pollutes the brook

I remember the old canal entrances near the a500 in stoke, they were filled in to make way for the new canal diversions. Before they filled it in they flooded so the underground subway that went under the road was a chamber full of water
