Nyewood is a hamlet in the Chichester district of West Sussex, England situated in the Western Rother valley. The village is on an unclassified road between Rogate and South Harting, the hub of the Harting civil parish that also includes the smaller settlements at West and East Harting. In former times it was also an intermediate station on the ”Middy”, a rural railway line that ran between Petersfield and Midhurst.[1] Despite its small size the area supports some notable businesses including Ballard's independent brewery whose hallmark brew is named after the hamlet[2]
