Newton, also known as Newton Green to distinguish it from Nowton near Bury St Edmunds, and Old Newton near Stowmarket, is a small village and civil parish in Suffolk, England. Part of Babergh district, it is located on the A134 (Assington Road) between Sudbury and Colchester, around three miles from the former.
Newton was recorded in Domesday as "Niwetuna"
Church Road leads north off A134 towards Newton Hall and All Saints Church (both 1 km from the village centre).
Unusually, the village green to the south and west has been converted to a 9-hole common land course in 1907. It is one of the oldest golf clubs in Suffolk. Residents are entitled to membership of the local golf club, though are limited to using the holes on the village green and cannot use the clubhouse. The green is also a wildlife site.
The village previously had a school, but it was closed in 1938. The building is today used as the village hall.
