The National Civil War Centre has organised walking tours across Newark

The National Civil War Centre has organised two walking tours to enlighten the public about the stories hidden behind people’s everyday places.

The first tour — Newark Through Time — takes the public to sites of Anglo Saxon, Medieval, Georgian and Victorian importance.

The second tour — Besieged But Never Beaten — takes the public into historical sites of 17th century Newark.

It tells the stories of how its inhabitants dodged cannonball fire and how the town survived the plague, from the musket peppered walls of Newark Castle to a nightmare that came true.

The next Newark Through Time tour, taking place on Saturday, June 15, will see a British Sign Language interpreter in attendance to aid Deaf or hard of hearing participants.

Carys Coulton-Jones, business manager for heritage and culture at Newark and Sherwood District Council, said: “It’s great that we have these accessible events taking place in Newark for everyone to enjoy.

“The tours will allow our community to learn more about the place they live and its history throughout the years as well as bringing more people into our fantastic town centre.”

“For families, these great tours are an engaging way to look at local history as part of school history studies.”

Tours take place on alternating Saturdays and will commence at the National Civil War Centre, Appleton Gate, Newark.

Pre-booking is recommended, and tickets cost £5. People can find out more or book tickets from the Palace Theatre Newark website.
