Newtown National Nature Reserve


Newtown National Nature Reserve is on the north-western coast of the Island and comprises areas of estuary and foreshore with extensive mudflats and saltmarsh, together with adjacent meadows and woodland.

The inlet from the Solent provides sheltered moorings. The remains of the old saltworks and oyster beds can still be seen.

There are three bird hides and a number of footpaths over the marshland and through the surrounding countryside.

Historically Newtown was a thriving commercial centre although today it has a small population with no shops or pub. However the historic status is still evident by the Town Hall (which is opened by the National Trust at various times), and the Church of the Holy Spirit.

Parking is provided by the National Trust on the outskirts of the village.
