Newark is a busy and prosperous town serving a population of approximately 35,000 with a catchment population of approximately 90,000. The town is a designated growth point with thousands of new homes proposed for the Fernwood and south Newark areas. Indeed the town attracts shoppers from a wide area, many preferring this market town with a wide range of specialised shops, boutiques and also most of the multiples including Waitrose, Morrisons, Asda, Marks and Spencer, etc. The town has excellent road access to the A1, A46 and A17 trunk roads. There are two railway stations: Newark Northgate providing services to London Kings Cross in just over 75 minutes; and Newark Castle station which provides a rail link to Nottingham and Lincoln. Newark has for many years been an important centre for the antique trade. Newark Showground of course hosts the International Antiques Fair. The town has the important recently opened Civil War Centre.

The building would equally lend itself to alternative uses subject to planning permission.
