Student Accommodation in Newport

Newport covers an area of just over 73.5 square miles and stands at the gateway between England and Wales.

Newport is known for...

  • Newport is a market town in the borough of Telford and Wrekin and county of Shropshire, England. It lies some 6 miles (10 kilometres) north of Telford and some 12 mi (19 km) west of Stafford, sitting on the Shropshire/Staffordshire border.
  • Newport sits on a sandstone ridge on the eastern border of the Welsh Marches and west of the Aqualate Mere, the largest natural lake in the English Midlands.
  • Early man fished here and two ancient log boats were uncovered 1 mi (1.6 km) from Newport. One has been preserved and is kept at Harper Adams University at Edgmond.
  • The villages of Church Aston, Chetwynd and Longford are adjoined to the south of Newport, though they remain in separate parishes. The village of Edgmond is located just to the west, separated by Cheney Hill, Chetwynd Park, and the Shrewsbury and Newport Canal.
  • Like many rural market towns, Newport was influenced by industry; it served the needs of the mining area to the east of Shropshire and was also affected by mass-produced industrial goods that replaced traditional crafts.
