Newcastle-under-Lyme Civic Society welcomes all new members.

If you are reading this page you must be interested in our town and probably want to ensure that its history and character are preserved for future generations to appreciate.

The Civic Society does not oppose progress and understands that the needs of our community change and develop over time but we do not wish to see our interesting, historic heritage swept aside and replaced by generic new buildings that fundamentally change the character of this Georgian / Victorian market town.


The objectives of the Society are to promote and encourage the following :-


  1. a) To stimulate public interest and care for the beauty, history and character of the area of the town and its surroundings.


  1. b) To encourage the preservation, development and improvement of features of general public amenity or historic interest.


  1. c) To pursue these ends by means of meetings, exhibitions, lectures, and promotion of schemes of a charitable nature.


  1. d) To encourage high standards of architecture and town planning in Newcastle-under-Lyme.


The Society currently meets at 7.30 pm on the first Monday of each month in St. James’s Church Hall, Clayton, Newcastle.

Not all everyone can attend meetings but all our members receive detailed minutes to keep them up to date.

Our annual subscription is just £7.00 per year payable in January.
