Acton is a hamlet in the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire.

It lies four miles south west of Newcastle close to the junction of the A53 and the A5182, Trentham Road.

Newcastle under Lyme District Council has an open windrow facility in Acton [1] where it composts garden waste collected in the borough into a nutrient rich soil improver for local farms and other places [2] including Trentham Gardens.

There is a redundant church in the village bearing the inscription Wesleyan Church. [3] It is now a private house. The Acton Hall Equestrian Centre [4] is located in the village too.
