Features and Buildings

The complex history of the Trent Vale is illustrated through the exceptional richness and diversity of its historic features and sites.

The Old Willow Works at Beckingham, Nottinghamshire, during restoration which is due for completion by summer 2011Trent Vale has an outstanding church heritage

The undeveloped nature of many of the villages and places in the Trent Vale gives the area a charming feeling of a forgotten time as well as being a key heritage asset.

There are currently 47 sites designated as Scheduld Ancient Monuments. While most of these represent buried remains, there are several structures still visible. There is also a vaulable built heritage throughout the Vale, including sites such as Gainsborough Medieval Hall, Torksey Castle and Newark Castle, together with many historic churches and chapels, farm and village buildings and numerous industrial and commercial buildings within the market towns.
