Ash's Yard was situated in the north west corner of Newark's Market Place. The entrance to the yard was via an opening immediately to the right of the Queen's Head public house. It took it's name from the Ash and Sons bakery which stood next to the pub. The timbered building with jettying was the bakehouse for the bakery shop.

Although Ash's shop and the yard entrance have been demolished to make way for the present Queen's Head Court, the bakehouse (restored 1960) still stands and is currently (2004) in use as a teashop. This view was taken from inside the yard looking back towards the Market Place.
