With its ancient buildings and unique cobbled market place, coupled with the town of Southwell which is dominated by the cathedral church of the diocese - the impressive minster - provide a wealth of pictorial and historic interest. Southwell, apart from its Minster, also proudly boasts its old coaching inn, the Saracen's Head, where they say King Charles I once slept. Also featured is the ancient Newark Castle. This book also gives a view back in time, showing the life of the local people and the changing face of the district from the 1940s to the 1980s. THE photographs in Memory Lane Newark and District are drawn mostly from the archives of the Newark Advertiser. The wartime images are supplied by Newark Museum. The book takes you upto the turn of the 21st century."
