In the 1800’s; the building that our shop is currently situated in used to be ‘Hotel Gilstrap’ – It was purchased by Joseph Gilstrap in 1818 and was ran by him until its closure in 1853. His son ( Sir) William also helped with the business. Sir William may be better known as the philanthropist who purchased, what is now the Gilstrap Centre Registry Office in Newark Castle Grounds. He paid around £10,000 (£2.5 million in today’s value) and presented it as a free public library in 1883.
