Newport, Wales

'''Newport''' ( northeast of Cardiff. At the 2011 census it is the third largest city in Wales, with a city population of 145,736, and an urban population (List of urban areas in the United Kingdom) of 306,844. The city forms part of the Cardiff-Newport metropolitan area with a population of 1,097,000.

Newport has been a port since medieval times, when a castle (Newport Castle) was built by the Normans. The town outgrew the earlier Roman town (Roman Empire) of Caerleon, immediately upstream, and gained its first charter (Municipal charter) in 1314. It grew significantly in the 19th century, when its port became the focus of coal exports from the eastern valleys of South Wales (South Wales Valleys). Until the rise of Cardiff from the 1850s, Newport was Wales' largest coal-exporting port. It was the site of the last large-scale armed insurrection in Britain, the Newport Rising of 1839 led by the Chartists (Chartism).

During the 20th century, the docks declined in importance, but Newport remained an important manufacturing and engineering centre. It was granted city status (City status in the United Kingdom) in 2002. Newport hosted the Ryder Cup in 2010. The city was the venue of the 2014 NATO summit. title NATO summit coming to Newport's Celtic Manor date 31 October 2013 journal South Wales Argus url http: www.southwalesargus.co.uk news 10777862.NATO_summit_coming_to_Newport_s_Celtic_Manor ?ref ms
