Brown Close, Newport
Brown Close, Newport
Located at the SE corner of an area of housing on the south side of Somerton Road where street names have a 'pioneers of aviation' theme. The close is named after Arthur Whitten Brown, who, together with John Alcock, piloted the first non-stop transatlantic flight, from Newfoundland to Ireland. The flight of 3,186 km (nearly 2,000 miles) in 1919 lasted 16 hours. Both men were knighted by King George V a few days later.
