Project summary

Our project focuses on Newark Castle, a Scheduled Ancient Monument and magnificent Grade 1 Listed Building, and in particular its nationally important 12th Century Gatehouse.

The project will:

  • Create a charging visitor attraction generating significant income to ensure the sustainability of the monument through increased visits
  • Engage with a wide range of people and organisations to create and sustain extensive volunteering and training opportunities
  • Enable urgent repairs to the historic fabric of the Gatehouse and a new roof, floors and windows to be added thus protecting it against further deterioration
  • Create a stimulating interpretive experience centring on the controversial monarch, King John, who died at Newark Castle in October 1216

As a result the built heritage will be better managed, in better condition, with engaged audiences.

The project will be a significant next step in the development of this amazing place, and will build on Heritage Lottery Fund’s previous successful investment.
