Newcastle under Lyme

Newcastle-under-Lyme, known simply as castle to many local people, is a market town in Staffordshire, England, and is the principal town of the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme. It is part of The Potteries Urban Area and North Staffordshire. It is not to be confused with the larger city of Newcastle upon Tyne.
Situated in a valley alongside the Lyme Brook, the town is immediately west of the neighbouring city of Stoke-on-Trent, its suburbs running into those of the city. Newcastle town centre is just 2 miles (3km) from Stoke-on-Trent and less than 4 miles (6 km) from Hanley. Newcastle-under-Lyme is about 17 miles (27 km) north of the county town of Stafford.
