Newtown, Staffordshire is a small village in South Staffordshire, England.[1]

Newtown lies in between Great Wyrley (to the north) and Bloxwich (to the south), or more precisely, Landywood (to the north) and Bloxwich (to the south), forming part of the Staffordshire/West Midlands border.[2] It lies on Walsall Road, the main route between Walsall and Cannock, which forms part of the A34.

Scant online information exists on Newtown, as it is only a small residential village, with very little other than housing.
