Other Information

  • There was a church on this site as early as 920 AD. Two Saxon crosses are the only surviving remnants of this period, they stand in overgrown enclosures next to the current church.
  • The earliest sections of the current church are from the 12th century. More substantial building work took place throughout the 13th century that is now known as Newark locally, apparently a bastardisation of "new work". A spire was added around 1340.
  • Major renovation work took place in the 1840s, most of the current building including the 186ft spire is from this era. It was erected as a replacement for a previous one that was removed for safety reasons in 1825.
