A £4.5 million project to develop a Grade II listed building in Newark into the Uk's first civil war centre has begun.
Woodhead Heritage has promised to employ local people on the project, working with apprentices and students.
Simon Butler, from Woodhead Heritage, said:
Our head office is based in the district and we strongly believe in employing local people to work on this project. During the works we shall be working with apprentices and work experience students from construction courses to provide learning opportunities in specialist heritage skills. We are keen to encourage the development of heritage skills in construction to ensure our heritage buildings continue to be protected in the future.
