Newland Village Room was donated to the village by one Mrs Roscoe of Newland to commemorate the end of the Great War.

At some time prior to it being donated, it is believed that the building was the village forge and we intend to research its history and provide more details as they are discovered. 


A commemorative plaque hangs in the Village Room as a memorial to those villagers who gave their lives in the Great War

In 2018, the damaged concrete render was removed with a view to re-rendering the building. However, the village was pleasantly surprised to discover that the stone work underneath was worthy of re-pointing and preserving. Interestingly, an OS Bench Mark was discovered once the render was removed carved into a stone on the bottom north corner adjacent to the road.
