During my summer travels in England, I was able to visit the city of Newark-on-Trent, This was a very important Royalist stronghold and the subject of several sieges. The city itself is very interesting with a magnificent and unusually large town square. Outside the city walls is the best preserved example of a Civil War earthwork: the Queen's Sconce. Here are some pictures of this beautiful and historical city.
I started my visit at the newly opened National Civil War Centre in the Newark Museum. This is a small but interesting museum in an early stage of its development but well worth the visit.
I finally arrived at the park containing the Sconce after a several mile walk.
