Introduction

Developed by the proprietor of the Newport Inn in the 1850s, the green sat alongside a garden, and a quoiting ground (1861), on ground tenanted by the Inn. Interest appears to have waned in the 1860s and eventually the Newport Bowling Club was formed to play on a green, not here but at Seacraig in 1869. Photo shows the green, complete with flagpole, in early 1878. Site now occupied by St Mary's Church.
