Distance: Less than 2.5 miles

Parking: There are multiple parking locations for Newcastle town centre where you can join the trail at the closest point. We parked at Lyme Valley park, close to Morrisons, at the end of Lyme Valley Road, ST5 3TF

General Information: Our route followed the Newcastle Heritage Trail from a leaflet with route map and information on each location included, looking at some of the history around Newcastle town. You should be able to collect a leaflet from local information points such as the Guildhall. There is also an augmented reality app to follow the trail and find out more - it's called St Giles AR
