Origins

In 1871, Newport was still merely a fringe village nestling along the south bank of the Tay. In that year, the first foundations of the Tay Rail Bridge were laid, and the placidity of Newport must have been rudely shattered by the influx of engineers and workmen from out-with the area. These men sought to find some way to pass their leisure hours and to make their own entertainment. The Resident Engineer and about a score of his associates decided that the answer to their problems was to form a private club and in doing so the West Newport Club was formally constituted.
