Station Walks (also known as The Bramptons)6997

Newcastle-under-Lyme, England, Staffordshire, Newcastle-under-Lyme

Brief Description

Station Walks now have a length of 375 metres, with shrub beds and forest trees, close to the line of the disused North Staffordshire Railway and its station which were removed around 1960. This doubled the width of the walks, although at a lower level. A 1903 bronze statue of Queen Victoria on a granite plinth was moved here in 1963 from Newcastle town centre.

History

Formerly known as Brampton Walks, these were originally 5 acres of land allotted to public walks in the Inclosure Act of 1816. Rural promenades were laid out in 1820 and invested in the town corporation in 1835.
