Lightwood is a suburb of Stoke-On-Trent, Staffordshire, England. It is located to the south of Longton, and Lightwood Road runs from here to Rough Close.

The area gives its name to the Lightwood Hoard, a substantial collection of Roman coins discovered buried in the garden of a house on Lightwood Road in 1960.[1]

Though containing mostly private housing, the area includes a Methodist chapel constructed in 1816 which is a Grade 2 listed building.[2][3]
