Welcome to Newborough Village

This website provides information on local community groups and businesses in Newborough, East Staffordshire. It is run by volunteers and funded by the Parish Council.

Newborough is a beautiful, small, rural village and parish situated in East Staffordshire, three miles South West of Hanbury and eight miles West of Burton-upon-Trent.  The parish, with a population of some five hundred residents and approximately 185 dwellings, stands in a narrow dale through which the River Swarbourn, a small rivulet, flows southward to the River Trent. Its eastern side is in the National Forest.

All Saints Church lies at the heart of the village, next to Needwood Primary School and opposite the Red Lion pub and the Old Baker's Cottage B&B and coffee shop. There is a well equipped children's playground, Riverbank Park.
