St Mary Magdalene, Newark

St Mary Magdalene, Newark, is one of the most imposing parish churches you will ever see. It dates from the 12th century and its 14th century spire is one of the tallest in the UK. Though extensively restored in the 19th century, this is very much a medieval church with notable features that include choir stalls, rood screen and the Markham Chantry Chapel. The latter has an early 16th century painted stone 'Dance of Death'. Intimately involved in the Civil War siege, there is still a hole in the church spire where it was hit by a Parliamentary cannon ball. The oldest part of the current building is the crypt, which dates from 1180.
