Grey Sanctuary: The Story of the Newark Friary

Grey Sanctuary: The Story of the Newark Friary
Peter Stephens

The Newark Friary stands apart, grey, brooding, exuding a hint of mystery. 

Home to two orders of friars; sanctuary for one, cherished Civil War bastion, proud mansion of some of the great and good of the county of Nottinghamshire.  The Friary has played all these roles, and may be truly termed a House for all Seasons.
