West Newton

West Newton is a small village in north west Norfolk, about 8 miles north east of Kings Lynn. It is mentioned in the 1068AD Domesday Book, under the name of Nivetuna. However, it has been inhabited much longer than that. The oldest evidence of human habitation is a Roman villa, the site of which is located about a quarter of a mile from the present church.

Until the middle ages, the low lying land to each side of the river a little downstream was an inlet of the sea, and nearby Castle Rising was a port. Later the area became marshland and now is mainly agricultural and woodland.

The study website includes:

● a brief insight into the history of the village

● photographs taken within the parish

● an alphabetical index of surname interests
