Nuevo Lidgate (Castellanese, Ingerish New Lydgate, Altazorian Palu Lidigati) is a town in the Ardispherian federal subject of Departamento del Centro. It is the largest town of Comuna Cualahualú (Cualahualú Commune) and an important agricultural and river-transport center at the first rapids of the Río Hierro, where a lock and dam are now located. The town was founded by a group of real estate speculators at the time the lock and dam were first built in the 1890s, and named for the city of Lydgate in Wiwaxia by businesswoman Veloria Wickham, who was originally from that city.

Nuevo Lidgate's current population is about 22,000 inhabitants, in a land area of 12.2 km2.
