Work starts on the National Civil War Centre in Newark

Contractors have started work converting the Old Magnus Buildings on Appletongate into a £5.3 million National Civil War Centre "where the centrepiece theme will be the deadly struggles for power in 17th century Britain." Newark was a staunchly Royalist town and played an important role in the English Civil Wars: King Charles I surrendered to the Scots Army here in 1646.
