About the neighbourhood
Water Newton is a small hamlet of around 40 houses, mostly built of 'Cotswold stone'. We have an historic church dating back to around 1100AD. The remains of Edward Edwards of Mutiny on the Bounty fame, are interred in the church. We have a working waterways lock which sees high River traffic during the boating season. The village is also famous for the discovery of Roman gold and silver in a field adjacent to Mill Lane, called the Water Newton Treasure (now in the British Museum).
