Philip Astley Newcastle-under-Lyme Town Trail
Newcastle-under-Lyme BID have teamed up with Creative Art North Staffordshire to create a Philip Astley Town Trail Map that tells you about the life of Philip Astley, Father of the Modern Circus.
The town trail uses window vinyls placed at specific locations around the town and combines art from Creative Art North Staffs with artwork by local Newcastle College students.
You can opt to take one or both trails, the second being a trail of historic and cultural sites linked with Philip Astley and his life.
Pick up your maps for each of the trail from the Newcastle MADE Shop on Lancaster Building on the High Street. Good Luck and Enjoy!
Alternatively book into one of the Philip Astley Expert Andrew Van Buren’s historic walks around Newcastle-under-Lyme where you can learn about Philip Astley and his legacy.
The Town Trail has been supported by Lottery players through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
