The earliest written evidence of Spiritualism in Stoke-on-Trent is from a newspaper article in the Staffordshire Daily Sentinel in 1873. Since then the city has enjoyed a rich and vibrant Spiritualist history. But where did Spiritualism originate; how did it materialise in the fabric of the city; and what does it look like today?
