Burslem, Stoke on Trent is a highly populated town with an extensive and interesting history which brings a huge 5 million tourists to the town each year to visit historical sites and enjoy the many amenities on offer.

Heavy industrial employment (mines, steel & pots) has left a legacy of ill-health among many older people, and a wide number of people who the injury solicitor in Burslem has the ability to help with Accident Advice Helpline. Manual labour and prolifically within agriculture is the most strenuous on employee health, resulting in more accidents and injuries than any other industry.
The town dates back to before the 15th century with the stone church built in the medieval year of 1536 still standing today. In the 1700’s Burslem boomed on the back of fine pottery production and canals, and became known as ‘The Mother Town’ of the six towns that make up the city of Stoke on Trent today. Burslem contains Britain’s last real working industrial district (i.e. where people live within walking distance of the factories of a single heavy industry – in this case, the potteries); and thus much of the nineteenth-century industrial heritage, buildings & character have survived intact.
