History of Newcastle-under-Lyme

Newcastle-under-Lyme is an ancient market town situated in Staffordshire in England. 

In the 18th century Newcastle Under Lyme was an important coaching town. It was on the main road from Liverpool and Manchester to Birmingham and London. Many stagecoaches stopped at Newcastle and the tradesmen in the town benefited from the traffic.

A few churches have shaped the history of the town, Saint George’s church has played a significant role in the religious community of the town, built in 1828 as a chapel first and then grew rapidly becoming its own parish by creating schools and building other churches locally.  

Later was built the Holy Trinity church in 1834, the church was built by Father James Egan, the first Roman Catholic priest of the town who also acted as his own architect. The building was built in a Gothic-style, the facade of the building is very unique from its dark blue bricks with black arcading. The building has been classed as a grade II and is still a great place of worship. 

And last but not least, Saint Giles Church has played a central part in the life of the town and the borough history. It is the house of Anglican church in this part of the borough, it is the fourth building on this site as the marks of previous roofs can be seen on the tower wall inside the church. The tower is the oldest structure of the whole town dating from the 14th century.
