About the Potteries Transport Rally and Running Day

to be held Sunday 19th May, 2019.

Organised by Potteries Omnibus Preservation Society (POPS), the 2019 Potteries Running Day will this time take place in conjunction with the Apedale Valley Light Railway, at Loomer Road, Chesterton, Newcastle-under-Lyme. In its day, Apedale was an industrious Colliery, whom today offer underground tours of the former mine. There are Buses and Trains both on display and running. The Heritage Centre and Museum are also open, and there are mine tours available, but make sure you book these in advance with the Heritage Centre - prices Children/OAPs £5, Adults £7 Family (2 Adult, 2 Child) £20. Museum entry is free, but donations are welcome. Apedale has an onsite café, where you can enjoy delicious North Staffordshire Oatcakes. POPS formed in 1977 to preserve former Potteries Motor Traction (PMT) buses - check out their facebook page for many rare and exciting photos and leaflets. The show starts at 10.00am and finishes at 5.00pm, and the Steam Trains run between 11.30am and 4.00m. Check out their website for directions if travelling by bus or train. Guide dogs only.
