The Blackfriars Roundabout is one of the roundabouts on the Newcastle-under-Lyme inner ring road, at the point where the A53 meets the A34.

The roundabout is named after Blackfriars Road, the street name of the A53 off the roundabout. This in turn refers back to the long-gone priory in the area.

Blackfriars Roundabout was constructed when the A34 section of the inner ring road was constructed in the 1970s. Prior to this, the A53 crossed a minor road at this point.

It was not until the 1980s, with the upgrade of the whole inner ring road to dual carriageway, that the A53 within the ring road was downgraded. However, signposts at this roundabout now do not wish to admit that the A53 continues through the town.
