Newtown Town Information

Newtown was once one of the Isle of Wight’s most strategically important towns but these days is more closely associated with tourism. The old town hall, dating from 1699, had to be saved for posterity by a group of anonymous local people in 1933 and is now maintained by the National Trust. The Trust also runs a nature reserve covering 800 acres on the nearby estuary. Consisting of mud flats and salt marsh, it is an important wintering ground for wildfowl. Oysters have been farmed here from pre-Roman times.
