About Water Newton

Welcome to our lovely traditional stone village, of which we are very proud. We have an idyllic location on the northern border of the county of Cambridgeshire,  in the district (and former county) of Huntingdonshire between the River Nene and the A1 trunk road.

We boast a historic church and a genealogy stretching back into Roman times when Water Newton was the site of the Roman garrison town of Durobrivae. An important archealogical find, The Water Newton Treasure, dating back to the village’s Roman origins now resides in the British Museum.

We are a friendly, forward looking village with a pride in the appearance of our village and a firm committment to the preservation of our lovely church. We host regular social events and our newest and most successful so far is the annual Music Fest.

Many in the area already know us for the picturesque lock on the River Nene, the beautiful walks and the coarse fishing on the river.

We hope you will enjoy making our aquaintance.
