Northwood, City of Stoke-on-Trent in John Bartholomew's "Gazetteer of the British Isles" (1887)

Northwood, City of Stoke-on-Trent in "A Topographical Dictionary of England" edited by Samuel Lewis (1848)

NORTHWOOD, an ecclesiastical parish, in the parish of Stoke-upon-Trent, N. division of the hundred of Pirehill and of the county of Stafford; immediately adjoining the town of Hanley. The district of Northwood was constituted in 1845, under the provisions of the act 6th and 7th Victoria, cap. 37; and is one mile and a half in length, and the same extent in breadth, one portion of it very high, and overlooking the surrounding country. The river Trent runs on the eastern side, but the Trent and Mersey canal forms the exact boundary in that direction. Coal and ironstone are wrought, and the manufacture of pottery-ware is largely carried on. The district became a parish on the consecration of the church, which has just been built: the edifice occupies an eligible site, and is in the early English style; the cost has been estimated at £2400. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Crown and the Bishop of Lichfield, alternately; net income, £150. The Methodists of the New Connexion have a place of worship.
