Newport is situated on the Shropshire / Staffordshire border and was itself planned as a new town during the reign of Henry I.
A great fire in 1665 destroyed most of the medieval buildings which were replaced by a fine selection of Regency and Georgian frontages. Today a wide variety of restaurants, pubs and bars offer added benefit to this rural unspoilt market town.
