Newcastle-under-Lyme is a market town in Staffordshire. It is the largest town in North Staffordshire and centre of the borough named after the town.

Newcastle is one of those places less important than it used to be - but its traditional status as a major centre for trade can be seen by the large number of roads converging on the town centre.

Newcastle is now bypassed by the M6 to the west and the A500 to the east and seems doomed to take second fiddle to the neighbouring city of Stoke-on-Trent which is part of the same conurbation. However, it fiercely guards its independence and remains a Primary Destination.

Roads in and around Newcastle are either managed by Staffordshire County Council or Stoke City Council, with the exception of the M6 and A500 which are Trunk Roads and maintained by Highways England.
