Summer Outing:

Guided walk around Newark – Wed 14th August 2019

Meet outside the National Civil War Centre at 14 Appleton Gate at 2pm 

Members and friends are invited to join us for a guided walk around the historic town of Newark. The town is easily accessible by car and public transport.

We all know of Newark’s vital role in the English Civil War and also of the wonderful old buildings that still survive that give Newark much character. There are also several excellent antique centres! However whether or not you already know Newark we are confident that you will discover more on Newark’s history and physical heritage. Even better if you have ancestors who lived in or near to the town!

There will not be a charge for the services of a Newark town guide. But as we will need to confirm numbers can intending participants please email: nottsfhspresident@nottsfhs.org to secure your place(s), by the 7th August please.

The walk will go ahead whatever the weather and is expected to take approximately one hour and fifteen minutes. Please assemble 10 minutes prior to the start time. As it takes place mainly in pedestrianised areas then any users of mobility chairs can be accommodated.

In the event of too few people booking we have the right to cancel, in which case we will notify any persons who have booked.
