Castle Hotel, Newcastle Under Lyme, Staffordshire

The Castle Hotel was situated at 22 High Street.
Source: Russell Judge
A historic coaching inn, latterly owned by the then Trust House Hotels, it was considered uneconomic to upgrade to modern requirements. It was bought by Tesco who wanted a High Street presence, and planning permission was gained in the face of considerable opposition for conversion to a supermarket, with only the fašade being retained. Subsequently Tesco sought bigger and more accessible premises, built a new out of town store, and sold the Castle Hotel site which is now a low cost retail outlet.
