The market town of  the borough of Newcastle-Under Lyme .At the base of the tile is the barracks, this leads up to the Golden ball inn, which is now a butchers and the canvas covers of the Stones market stalls in front of the Guild hall. Newcastle-under-Lyme early economy was based around the hatting trade, silk and cotton mills. Later coal mining and brick manufacture, iron casting and engineering rose to prominence. Fine red earthenware and soft paste porcelain tableware (the first production in Staffordshire) was produced in Newcastle at Samuel Bell's factory in Lower Street in 1724-1754. The manufacture in the borough of clay tobacco- smoking pipes started about 1637 and grew rapidly, until it was second to the hatting industry. In the 17th 18th and 19th centuries, the town had a flourishing felt hat manufacturing industry, probably at its peak in the 1820s, when a third of the towns population were involved in over 20 factories, but by 1892 there was only one still in production.
