The village of Newton

Newton is a small village in the English county of Cumbria. It is located on the Furness peninsula north-east of the port of Barrow-in-Furness and south of the town of Dalton-in-Furness.

Newton was listed in the Domesday Book as being one of the vills or townships forming the Manor of Hougun which was held by Earl Tostig.[1]

Sky News Presenter Steve Dixon was born in the village, as was Richard T. Slone, a painter. Both were in the same year at school and were educated firstly in Newton and then in Dalton-in-Furness.[2]
