NEWARK CASTLE, Newark

NEWARK CASTLE, Newark

The impressive ruins of 12th century Newark Castle sit on the bank of the River Trent, the interior now home to a small Victorian garden, complete with bandstand. Famously, King John died in the castle on 18th October 1216. Newark was a Royalist town during the English Civil War and was besieged by Parliament; eventually the town surrendered. The castle's ruinous state is partly due to Parliamentary forces, who wrecked the fortifications so that they could not be used again.
