Newton-le-Willows is a town in Merseyside, formerly Lancashire, 5 miles from St. Helens.

The town was originally a farming community, but grew considerably with the Industrial Revolution and particularly the coming of the railways.

There is a picturesque hall dating from the 16th century.

A stone marks the spot where William Huskisson, President of the Board of Trade, was killed by a train in 1830 at the opening of the Liverpool to Manchester line, thus becoming the world`s first fatality on a railway.
