Description:Burslem Public Baths were on Moorland Road alongside the Loop Line and opposite Burslem Station entrance. Behind was a narrow lane that lead to Chapel Lane. The Loop Line ran under Moorland Road and the bridge is just beyond the last vehicle parked outside the baths. Opened in January 1896, the baths had two pools, private baths and a Turkish bath. The baths are similar to those in Longton, built of red brick with terra-cotta facings. They proved very popular, over 25,000 men used the baths in the first year of opening. The building has been demolished and the site used for commercial purposes.
