Nottingham Building Society's Newark branch
The market town of Newark-on-Trent lies in east Nottinghamshire, just over 20 miles from Nottingham. As its name suggests it sits on the River Trent and is popular as a commuter town due to its close proximity to the A1, A17 and A46 as well as the connections its railway station gives to places such as London, Leeds and Newcastle. An historic town, it had significant links with the Norman Conquest and English Civil War.
In late 2018 our branch moved from Market Place to a more modern location on Bridge Street (more details below). The team of expert staff there can guide you through our range of savings accounts or talk about estate planning. They can also help with finding a mortgage through our mortgage broker service, provided by Nottingham Mortgage Services, or help arrange a funeral plan, home insurance or assist in the purchase or sale of property.
Services available at our branch include
Bite-sized fact: The brainchild, and joint inventor, of the CT scanner, Sir Godfrey Hounsfield, hailed from Newark. He was awarded the 1979 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine along with Allan McLeod Cormack.

Newark branch in the news
Rugby legend Dusty tackles branch opening
Leicester Tigers legend Dusty Hare MBE (centre of pic) was guest of honour at the opening of our new state-of-the-art branch to his home town, Newark.
Hare - who made 394 appearances for Tigers between 1976 and 1989 - cut the ribbon at the new town centre location on Bridge Street.
Improved facilities include comfortable meeting rooms and a community area. It also features Nottingham On Demand (NOD) - a video system that allows for full mortgage applications to be taken in any of our branches, in an average of just 30 minutes.
Showing our warm heart for Framework
Newark branch colleagues handed over a box containing plenty of ‘winter warmers’ to homelessness charity Framework, one of our charity partners.
The items of cold weather clothing, such as scarves, hats and gloves, had all been either made or donated by customers or members of staff.
