Newnham Murren is a hamlet in the Thames Valley in South Oxfordshire, about 0.5 miles (800 m) east of the market town of Wallingford. Newnham Murren is now in the civil parish of Crowmarsh and is now contiguous with the village of Crowmarsh Gifford.

Newnham Murren was a strip parish: a thin strip of land extending into the Chiltern Hills including part of Stoke Row.

Newnham Murren, which had been a chapelry of North Stoke, was made a civil parish in the 19th century, but in 1932 the civil parish was absorbed into the new civil parish of Crowmarsh.
