Visit Newport and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Newport, Shropshire. This small, old market town, 13 miles West of Stafford on the A518, is really one long, wide and pleasant High Street. The town is far from the sea and the “port” in the name probably has its old sense of borough or market town. At the northern end of the High Street the road divides so that the imposing Parish Church of St Nicholas, with its red sandstone tower, stands on an island site. The church contains interesting monuments, and a list of rectors back to 1100. Near the church is the Royal Victoria Hotel with its pillared entrance. Inside the foyer is displayed the shell of a large turtle, 2 ft across, which was served to celebrate the opening of the hotel, then known as the Union Hotel, in October 1830. Two years later, the then Princess Victoria visited Newport and its new hotel and, in recognition of the loyalty and warmth of her reception, she allowed the hotel to change its name.
Aqualate Park, nearby, is attractive with its herd of deer.
