A tour through pictures, to the town and to some of the fascinating buildings and wealth of history it holds

By Nalhs Newark

'Amongst the interesting old towns which have a history that is worth narrating, the Borough of Newark-upon-Trent, once dignified by the title " Key to the North", may fairly claim a worthy place' - Cornelius Brown, Annals of Newark, 1879.
Whilst we do not even begin to attempt to emulate Cornelius Brown, it is hoped that this book will open a brief window into Newark's evolution over time, and give a tantalising hint to its historical story.
We have tried to show the progression of some of Newark's landmarks - a few not commonly seen, or even known about - covering a period from the mid-nineteenth century to the 1970s.  Some views have improved, others not, but all have been changed by the progression of time.
(This book maybe purchased from local Newark Bookshops, or through Amazon on-line)  price £12.99
