The Society opened its Newcastle-under-Lyme branch at 33 Ironmarket in 1971, opposite the Queen’s Gardens, a former winner of the Britain In Bloom ‘Horticultural Excellence’ award.
Local museum archive records identify the site as having been occupied by George Mason – ‘a very reliable firm for removals’ – circa 1911 at what was then number 13 Ironmarket, the street numbering changing several years later.
Also close by, in 1910, were the premises of hairdresser Charles Edwards.
Either way, we’ve always aimed to be a cut above the rest – and we’re still helping people to move house to this day!
Ironmarket is so-called after the iron trade that flourished during medieval times in the Ancient Borough, which was created by Royal Charter in 1173.
Newcastle’s traffic-free town centre offers a variety of shops, bars and cafes, and its renowned ‘Stones’ open-air market attracts visitors from throughout North Staffordshire and beyond on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
