Victoria County History Shropshire
The New History of Newport, as part of the Victoria County History Shropshire, had its scoping study completed in April 2019 and is available here. The Volumes that will comprise this history will also be known as the Newport Red Book.
This section of the website will keep you up-to-date with all developments and progress in this project which is now entering a new phase in which professional historians take up the story with the tireless support of all our volunteers.
As part of this study, work has already been completed in the form of small projects that will provide essential elements of this history. One example is the Survey of Newport’s Burgage Plots.
