The east side of Newark Street was badly damaged by bombing
during World War II. The west side was demolished to be replaced
by the Southgate Shopping Centre in 1973. Newark Street gave
access to the bus station and to a multi-storey car park.
The whole area was redeveloped again with the building of the
SouthGate retail centre in 2010. The line of the old Newark
Street was retained as a pedestrian route.
