Cobridge is an area of Stoke-on-Trent in the county of Staffordshire, England. Cobridge has a Holdcroft (car dealer) centre on Sneyd Street,[1] a community centre[2] and a C of E church called Christ Church on Emery Street[3][4] which is Grade II listed.[5] Cobridge once had a railway station on the Potteries Loop Line.[6] Cobridge was marked on the 1775 Yates map as 'Cow Bridge' and was recorded in Ward records (1843) as Cobridge Gate.[7] There was once an old school house in Cobridge, at the bottom of Sneyd Street and demolished in 1897. A Victorian school once stood adjacent to Christ Church on the corner of Emery and Mawdesley Streets. The old Granville school was replaced by the new Forest Park school. St. Peter's Catholic school still exists in the area. [8]
