Description:With the coming of the railway, Rudyard Lake became a popular countryside day out for people in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire.

Rudyard Lake was built in the 18th century in order to feed the Trent & Mersey Canal with water. It did this via the Caldon Canal, entering the main canal at Summit Lock, Etruria.

Here, a boy looks out over the water and wooded hillsides.
