The town of Newark has been an important place since medieval times, when it became a major centre for wool and cloth production. The town grew around its once-impressive castle, built in the eleventh and twelfth centuries but later destroyed in 1646 following the town’s surrender to attacking Parliamentary forces during the Civil War. The town expanded and developed again in Victorian times, and a number of new industries were established, among them sugar refining, which is still in evidence today.


In Lost Newark local authors Jillian Campbell and Mike Cox step back in time and rediscover Newark’s lost buildings and remember the forgotten architectural heritage that once embellished this attractive East Midlands market town.
