Description
The popular village of Newport has a range of amenities including a Church, Inns, shops, post office and excellent schools. The village has its own railway station giving commuter access to London's Liverpool Street and Cambridge. The market town of Saffron Walden with its excellent shopping and recreational facilities is three miles away and Bishops Stortford which also has a main line station and the M11 motorway access point (junction 8) is approximately ten miles south, also giving access to Stansted Airport.

THE LINKS The Links is an imposing building in the heart of the village. It was built in 1775 as a House of Correction or Bridewell to house local troublesome men and women. The Links has since been converted into four separate dwellings, but signs of the history of the building can still be found with the names and dates of the previous occupants carved into the brickwork in the courtyard.
