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 (newsreader) was born in the village, as was Richard T. Slone, an award winning painter. Both were in the same year at school and were educated firstly in Newton and then in Dalton-in-Furness.[2]
