Dresden is a southern district of Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England, situated on the Trentham Road (A5035), to the south of, and part of, the town of Longton.

The district was developed in the 19th century by the Duke of Sutherland and was originally called Spratslade. It was later renamed in honour of the German city of Dresden. [2]
