Newport Castle

Introduction

The site is located in a prominent position overlooking the town about 100m from Newport Church at an elevation of about 64m above sea level. It comprises the ruins of a medieval castle and a 19th-century three storey house built in the gatehouse, which is still occupied. The ruins include three corner towers and an internal structure with a crypt or undercroft. The south tower has been altered in Victorian times to provide garden features. The internal space within the ruined walls is mostly laid to lawn with peripheral shrubbery and trees.
