My name is Richard Howle. Born and bred in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, I have a keen interest in our local industrial past and the buildings that survive from a bygone age as well as the beautiful countryside that surrounds our city.

I have exhibited my work in The Potteries Museum & Art Gallery and Burslem School of Art, I currently have framed pictures for sale at The Picture House, Smallthorne and Apedale Heritage Centre.

I find many opportunities to photograph some wonderful things on my travels in and around the area and I've created this site to showcase some of my favourites.

Please feel free to browse the site and to leave feedback and suggestions.

Thanks for looking
