A village outside Stoke/Hanley. A good safe stopping point just outside the Stoke 5-towns, but with limited moorings. This might be seen as the changeover from the urban Caldon and the more pleasant rural Caldon. Towards Stoke, after a couple of miles, the canal passes close to some rough estates, concerning which there have been reports of boaters being targeted by local gangs.
Useful shops about 5 minutes walk.
Milton is a very convenient spot for vehicle access, by entrance to Hardman Football Development Centre.
Enterprise car hire in Hanley do pick-up and drop-off.
