  • Here are the details of maps for Newcastle-under-Lyme:

  • Staffordshire Sheet 17.04a Newcastle-under-Lyme 1877 - published 2011; intro by Derrick Pratt. ISBN.978-1-84784-458-3
  • Staffordshire Sheet 17.04b Newcastle-under-Lyme 1898 - published 1989; intro by Dave Adams. ISBN.978-0-85054-276-9

    We have published two versions of this map, showing how the area changed across the years. The town is well placed on the map, with all the town centre shown.

    Features on the 1898 version include St Giles church, the town centre in detail with individual buildings neatly delineated, Guildhall, St John's church, schools, Penkhull Street, cattle market, North Staffordshire Railway Pool Dam Branch, NSR line with Newcastle station, Enderley Mill, Brampton Mills, Castlehill Foundry (disused), Waterloo Works, isolation hospital, militia barracks, Kingsfield Pottery, Harpfield Tileries, tramway, St Mark's church Basford, part of Stoke Workhouse (at foot of map), Newcastle under Lyme Canal, chapels etc. Features on the 1877 map are broadly similar, but the town is slightly less built-up.

    There are directory extracts on both maps.

    The map links up with Staffordshire Sheets 11.16 Wolstanton to the north, 17.03 Silverdale to the west and 18.01 Stoke & Shelton to the east.
