Newton is a hamlet in Nottinghamshire, England. It is located 1 mile (1.6 km) south-west of East Bridgford and about 1 mile (1.6 km) south-east of the River Trent, close to the junction of the A46 Fosse Way and the A6079. It is in the civil parish of Shelford and Newton.

RAF Newton is a disused airfield immediately to the south of Main Street. It opened in July 1940 and closed in 2000.[1] The hangars and other buildings are now used by a number of businesses within the Newton Commercial Centre.

Newton Mill was a wooden post mill built before 1855. It ceased work c. 1920 and the buck was dismantled c. 1952. Some parts, including a stone neck bearing, were donated to the Science Museum in London. The brick roundhouse now belongs to the Crown.[2]
