God's Providence House, Newport

Gods Providence House Newport
God’s Providence House, Newport

God's Providence House at the south east corner of St Thomas' Square is so named because during an outbreak of plague in 1583/84, this was the one house in the town in which no-one died.

In 1701, the house had to be partially rebuilt after a fire, however it is still one of the oldest buildings in Newport.

Today it is open as tea rooms and restaurant.
