Waterways of Stoke-on-Trent - Newcastle
NEWCASTLE UNDER LYME CANAL ROUTE
1898 OS map showing the junction between the Newcastle canal and the Trent and Mersey canal.
After passing under Church Street the Newcastle canal runs alongside the Spode works and behind the Town Hall (red square).
Present day hints of the earlier existence of the canal are found in "Aqueduct Street" (purple square) which is alongside the town hall - this name reflects the presence of the aqueduct which carried the canal over the fowlea brook (light blue) which went into a culvert under Brook Street (green square).
The yellow square show the junction of the Newcastle canal with the Trent & Mersey canal.
