Tunstall Town is due to reopen on 5 September after a major and very expensive refurbishment and paintings by HL Pratt will be on permanent public display.

These include Trent Vale, Basford Bank, Longton, Hartshill, Cliffe Vale and Penkhull.

Harry Lark Pratt [ 1803 – 1873] was born in Derby but moved to Stoke in 1803.  He worked at Minton.

He was commissioned by London publishers Chapman and Hall to make drawings of the baronial halls of Staffordshire, Cheshire and Derbyshire.
