Newark Castle, in Newark, in the English county of Nottinghamshire was founded in the mid 12th century by Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln. Originally a timber castle, it was rebuilt in stone towards the end of the century. Dismantled in the 17th century after the English Civil War, the castle was restored in the 19th century, first by Anthony Salvin in the 1840s and then by the corporation of Newark who bought the site in 1889.

A magnificent view Newark Parish Church of St Mary Magadalene, Newark-on-Trent. The oldest St Mary Magdalene Church here dated to the early Norman period. Of this there is little left to see, barring possibly some central piers in the nave. The tower was begun in 1230 and completed by 1350. Most of the rest of the church was rebuilt from 1310 to around 1489 when the Chancel was completed.

There is a hole in the spire supposedly put there during the Civil War by a cannon shot. Surprisingly this detail escaped the attentions of Sir George Gilbert Scott who did his usual restoration job in the mid-19th Century.



A big thanyou from North Wales
