Talke was made a civil parish in 1932, being transferred from the disbanded Audley Urban District to being part of the Kidsgrove Urban District which subsequently became part of the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme.
Talke and Talke Pits were formerly mining sites, which is why there are such road names as "Coal Pit Hill". There are no longer remnants of its industrial past, as nowadays Talke is a large housing estate.
