Newman's End is a hamlet in the civil parish of Matching, and the Epping Forest district of Essex, England.

The hamlet, at the north of the parish, is less than 1 mile (1.6 km) north-west from Matching village and the parish church of St Mary, and 1 mile southeast from the village of Sheering, The M11 motorway is 1 mile to the west, with Junction 7 the closest access 5 miles (8 km) to the southwest.
