Welcome to Newton Abbot Town Council
Newton Abbot grew substantially on the introduction of the railway in the 19th century. The Town still enjoys a strategic position on the main railway line to London, Penzance and The North and excellent trunk road and motorway connections, situated off the A380 Exeter to Torquay Road. Newton Abbot is often known as the Gateway to Moor and Sea because of its closeness to Dartmoor National Park and the coastal resorts of Torquay and Teignmouth.
The Town has much to be proud of; St Leonards Tower, Decoy Country Park and numerous other town parks, Forde House, Bradley Manor, a Town Quay, six allotment areas, excellent primary and secondary schools, Museum and Railway museum, a leisure centre, a new hospital, the Racecourse to name but a few.
NEWTON’S PLACE - ONE PLAN, COUNTLESS POSSIBILITIES.
The Newton’s Place project will provide an accessible community building, celebrating the heritage of the town and its people. We will restore the former St. Leonard’s Church in Wolborough Street, Newton Abbot, and create a purpose-built museum and community space bursting with vibrant tales from the past.
With your support we can land on target! Your donations, not matter how small, will help make this exciting project possible.
