Newton is a Community of numerous ‘villages’ which are clusters of houses. The area of Newton is APPROXIMATELY the pink area of the map below and is broken up by areas of mangrove swamp and marsh. Most of the area is jungle with most ‘roads’ being heavily rutted tracks as a result of the rainy seasons. The Capital Freetown is on the NW end of the peninsula, the white ‘Urban Area’ top left of this map. There is only poor mapping available – this is a Constituency map with polling stations [P]!
