Newport and Carningli

Newport and Carningli contains nine historic landscape character areas. These areas reflect the variety and complexity of the historic landscape. Newport town, with the medieval street plan preserved in its topography and its many fine buildings constructed from local stone, is one area. Above the town the land rises rapidly to another character area - the open, bleak moorland of Carningli Common topped with the stony rampart of a massive hillfort. Other areas include high sea cliffs, the Nevern estuary, and the fields and farms of the rich land of the coastal belt.
