Newport has a church, a school, a few shops, two public houses and two playing fields.

In 1823 Newport (then New Port with New Village, and the 'West Side' of the settlement), was partly in the parish of Eastrington, partly part of an extra-parochial area, and within the Wapentake and Liberty of Howdenshire, and the Wapentake of Harthill. In the early 1770s the area that became Newport was the uncultivated and barren Walling Fen. A clay bed 30 feet (9 m) deep, and adjacent to the present village, was found and dug to provide material for the production of bricks, tiles and earthenware. A quantity of 1,700,000 tiles and 2,000,000 bricks were being made annually by 1823. The village that had grown over 50 years attained a population of 339 and a Wesleyan chapel, established 1814, with Sunday School to educate 200 poor children for Newport and surrounding villages. Occupations in 1823 for Newport, New Village and West Side, included nine farmers, two blacksmiths, seven brick and tile manufacturers, an earthenware manufacturer, two butchers, two carpenters, two coal merchants, three corn millers, five drapers, one of whom was a druggist, three grocers, two saddlers, two shoemakers,five tailors, eight master mariners, a bricklayer, a hair dresser, a sacking weaver & basket maker, two shopkeepers, a baker, a gardener, a schoolmaster, and the landlords of The Turk's Head, The King's Arms Inn, and The Crown & Anchor public houses. A packet boat conveyed goods and passengers by water to Hull and back once a week. A carrier conveyed goods and passengers by land to Hull, and to Howden, once a week. A mail coach ran to Hull and Doncaster daily.[3]

The 1897–98 Newport parish church of St Stephen was designated a Grade II listed building in 1987.[4]

Newport was served by Wallingfen railway station, formerly Newport, on the Hull and Barnsley Railway between 1885 and 1955.[5]
