Introduction

This page is devoted to showing photos of, and giving a little information about, the main streets in and leading to the centre of Newark-on-Trent, England, but it is by no means comprehensive, and will be added to from time to time. (Most of the intended photos have yet to be taken.) It is an adjunct to my main Newark page. The locations of all the streets shown can be seen on the 1829 Newark map.

Millgate

Millgate was a major industrial area of Newark, with the north side, lined with wharves, having direct access to the river for transport of goods in and out. The first photo (66,495 bytes) shows one side of Millgate looking south-west from Gordon Square, while the second (75,308 bytes) shows the same length on the other side. Both photos were taken on 20th December 1997. The map in the final image (69,156 bytes) shows part of the road as it was in 1844.

 

 

==================================================

Middlegate

Middlegate This normally busy street was empty when this photo (77,721 bytes) was taken on 25th December 2000. The photo was taken from near the junction with Stodman Street, looking eastwards towards Kirkgate, which is just visible in the distance.

 

 

==================================================

Kirkgate

Kirkgate Kirkgate These two views of Kirkgate were both taken from close to the junction with Middlegate on 21st February 2001. Until about the mid-nineteenth century this was a part of the Great North Road from London to York and Edinburgh.

 

 

 

==================================================

Stodman Street

Stodman Street This photo (20,862 bytes) was taken from the junction with Middle Gate, looking towards the Market Square, on 29th October 2003.

The most distant building visible, white fronted and standing a little forward of its neighbours, is the Clinton Arms on the Market Square. A little closer, with stereotypical Tudor half-timbered overhanging upper floor, is the Governor's House at the corner of the Square.

 

Stodman Street This photo (16,441 bytes) was taken from the junction with Middle Gate, looking towards the Castle Gate, on 29th October 2003.

The most distant (white) building visible stands on the junction with Castle Gate, and is in the right foreground of the next photo. The ancient Woolpack Inn is about half way down the street but difficult to see. It is also white-fronted, but is sandwiched between two red brick buildings each about twice its height.

 

 

Stodman Street This photo (23,374 bytes) was taken from the junction with Castle Gate, looking towards the Middle Gate, on 29th October 2003.

This photo in fact shows the entire length of the street, with the Governor's House at the corner of the Market Square as the most distant building visible - the projecting first floor is the most easily spotted aspect. The low-fronted Woolpack Inn is seen beyond and immediately to the left of the white van in the foreground.

 

 

==================================================

Balderton Gate

Balderton Gate This photo (12,553 bytes) was taken from the junction with Sherwood Avenue on 29th October 2003.

The large brick building with tall pointed slate roof is St. Mary's Church Rooms, on the corner of Guildhall Street (on the far side of the building, but difficult to identify in this photo). The parish church dominates the scene despite being just over a quarter of a mile away from the camera. The large white building apparently in front of the church is in fact the end of a block of shops on the left of the road, where it narrows at the Carter Gate end, and is closer to the camera than the two gable ended buildings which can be seen in both this photo and (much closer) the next.

 

 

Balderton Gate This photo (15,798 bytes) was taken from the junction with Carter Gate and Appleton Gate on 29th October 2003. It is difficult to believe now that this narrow street was part of the Great North Road from London to York and Edinburgh until some time in the nineteenth century.

 

 

==================================================

Barnby Gate

Barnby Gate The photo (17,315 bytes) was taken from the junction with Appleton Gate on 29th October 2003. This junction is very close to that shown above, and the building in the right foreground of this photo is also visible in the left foreground of the photo of Balderton Gate above.

 

 

==================================================

Castle Gate

Castle Gate This photo (19,572 bytes) of Castle Gate was taken on 29th October 2003, from the junction with Stodman Street, looking towards the junction with Millgate and Lombard Street.

 

 

Castle Gate This photo (20,736 bytes) of Castle Gate was taken on 29th October 2003, from the south corner of the Castle grounds, looking towards the junction with Bargate and Beastmarket Hill. The distant red brick building immediately to the right of the lamp-post in this picture is the former Ram hotel, while the adjacent much smaller, white fronted and steep-roofed building to the left of the post is the Royal Oak, which faces Beastmarket Hill.

 

 

==================================================

North Gate

North Gate This photo (20,521 bytes) was taken on 29th October 2003 from nearly opposite the junction with Water Lane, looking towards the junction with Beastmarket Hill and Castle Gate.

Browser compatibility statement

I believe web pages should be accessible to all browsers, rather than surfers being browbeaten into switching to some particular browser to see a page. (How many people would be happy if popular TV programmes could only be watched with the latest model of one particular make of TV set?). I am currently going through this site trying to achieve this as far as possible, but I do not have any means of testing it with all the dozens of browsers out there. When I think I have managed it with a page I'll include this paragraph at the end and a suitable logo at the top. If you have trouble viewing any page on this site, especially a page including this paragraph, please let me know (
see my contact page), and tell me what browser (name and version) and what operating system you are using, so I can try to do something about it. Thanks.
