Sideway (pronounced "Siddaway") is an area of Stoke-on-Trent, approximately one mile south west of Stoke-upon-Trent. It is located on the junction of the A500 and the A50 adjacent to the Britannia Stadium.
The area around the stadium was formerly a spoil tip for the Hem Heath Colliery, which closed in the mid-1990s; the stadium itself opened in 1997. The surrounding area has also been redeveloped and is home to a hotel, restaurant, health club and a number of car dealerships.
It also has two lakes which are controlled by Fenton and District Angling Society. Known as the Overflow complex. http://www.fentonanddistrictanglingsociety.co.uk/waters/overflow-complex-sideway/
There are proposals to build a park and ride station in this area, taking advantage of its location on the A500 and A50.
