Newark Civil War Trail
The Civil War Trail is an easy walk around Newark, covering approximately 1.5 km and taking 45 minutes. It starts at the Newark Bronze map in the Castle Grounds and finishes at the Town Wharf. It is wheelchair and pushchair friendly, and there are studs in the pavement to follow. The trail leaflet is available from the Newark Tourist Information Centre.
The walk takes in many of the sites and buildings that relate to the Civil War period, including the Castle itself, the Prince Rupert pub, the Governors House (now Greggs), the Old White Hart, the Church, the Charles I Coffee House and The Wharf.
The trail highlights buildings which would have been billets for the Civil War soldiers, and buildings in which royalty stayed. It highlights buildings where there is still evidence of the Civil War, such as the stonework of the castle which is blackened in parts from the gunpowder used by Parliamentary forces, and the church spire where a hole marks the spot where the shot from a Parliamentarian canon is said to have struck the church in 1644.
