Town heritage trails

Newark Civic Trust have launched their impressive new website which includes a fascinating series of well designed town trail leaflets that "give a guide to points of interest in and around Newark." Leaflets available so far are:
  • Civil War trail
  • Medieval timber-framed buildings trail
  • Malting and brewing trail
Future topics will include: Art Deco Newark; Georgian Newark; Newark Riverside; and Newark’s Curiosities.

The website also includes online copies of the Trusts' interesting magazine.

Mansfield has also published a town trail. It can be downloaded as a printable PDF, an MP3 audio file or a video:
