About Newport

County Town, being sited on the River Medina, about 5 miles from the sea. Despite its name, the town became the 'New Port' and was given its charter by Richard de Revers, Lord of the Island, as early as 1180, and for centuries before that was also home to the Romans who built luxurious villas in the area.

Newport developed primarily as a result of its location on the navigable River Medina, and also to its central position on the island. Road connections from north, south, east and west meet in Newport. Newport also used to be the hub for the steam railway but this was shut down in the mid 1960's.

Newport has few notable buildings in use today. The mills having either been converted into homes or demolished. The shopping district is concentrated along the High Street with additional facilities in St. James's and St. Thomas's Squares, Pyle Street and the surounding areas
