Newport

Newport is an old staging town on the Chester - London route. It has an old church (St Nicholas') that was built during the reign of Henry 1 but much restored by the Victorians.
The high street is very wide and is Newport's most striking feature.
After a fire in 1665 destroyed most of the towns buildings the replacements that stand today are very Georgian in design.
At the top of the high street stands a revolting 1960's building whose only function (that I can see) is to make the town centre look horrible.
Hopefully they will knock it down some day.
