A Perfect Place to Visit

Since the 19th century Newton's history has been very closely linked with the railways.  It was little more than a village when the famous Vulcan Foundry was opened in 1831 and later developed into one of the world's foremost locomotive manufacturers.

Vulcan Village was developed to house workers from the foundry and has in recent years become a conservation area.  Period notices adorn the gable ends of the houses on Derby Row, whilst the last house on Manchester Row incorporates a magnificent stone “Vulcan”, removed from the Works.  The Inn houses memorabilia from the factory.
