Longton

4.3
Longton is a southern district of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, one of the six towns of the Potteries which formed the City of Stoke-on-Trent in 1910.HistoryLongton was a market town in the parish of Stoke in the county of Staffordshire. The town still has a market housed in an attractively renovated market hall.Coal miners in the Hanley and Longton area ignited the 1842 General Strike and associated Pottery Riots.In March 1865, Longton and Lane End were incorporated as the Borough of Longton. On 1 April 1910, the town was federated into the county borough of Stoke-on-Trent. In 1925 the area was granted city status. One legacy of Longton's administrative independence from 1865 to 1910 is Longton Town Hall, a prominent landmark in the town centre.In 1986 Longton Town Hall faced demolition by Stoke-on-Trent City Council amid considerable local protest. Work on stripping the interior had already begun before an injunction was brought and the building saved.Together with Rochdale, then in Lancashire, Longton was host to the first Workers Educational Association tutorial classes. R.H. Tawney, known as "the patron saint of adult education", taught the classes for three years starting in January 1908.
