The local area
Part of Newcastle-under-Lyme’s name comes from the castle that was built in the area in the 12th century, while the last part of the name could refer to the Lyme Brook or the Forest of Lyme, which was a much more extensive forest in medieval times. The area grew due to its silk and cotton mills, in addition to the hatting trade, and later coal mining, engineering, brick manufacture and iron casting. There are a number of parks that prove popular among locals, as does the traditional market that is held six days a week.
Newcastle-under-Lyme benefits from a close proximity to the M6 motorway, which can be used to head south to Birmingham and north to Liverpool, Manchester and Carlisle, and on the local towns such as Stoke-on-Trent and Crewe.
