Newport is a large village in Essex near Saffron Walden. The village has a population of just over 2,000.Located approximately 41 miles (66 kilometres) north of London, the village is situated amongst the arable fields of northern Essex. With a regular train service to London Liverpool Street from the Newport (Essex) railway station, the village is considered to be within commuting distance of the capital and as such attracts a number of workers from the City of London. Newport Free Grammar School, a comprehensive co-educational secondary school, is also located in the village.Newport is the centre point of the long-distance path known as "The Harcamlow Way", a figure-of-eight walk between Cambridge and Harlow.
