National Trust Clumber Park

0 reviews


Peaceful woodlands, open heath and rolling farmland, with a superb serpentine lake at its heart and the longest avenue of lime trees in Europe.

Clumber Park is a country park, in part designed by Capability Brown, in the Dukeries near Worksop in Nottinghamshire, England. It was formerly the park of a country house called “Clumber House”, which was the principal seat of the Dukes of Newcastle from the early 18th century onwards. It is owned by the National Trust and open to the public. The house itself was demolished following a fire in 1938. Charles Boot of Henry Boot Construction, was contracted to do the demolition and he removed a vast array of statues, facades and fountains to his Derbyshire home, Thornbridge Hall, although the bulk were lost to private buyers through auction. However, many features remain, including an outstanding Gothic Revival Chapel built by the 7th Duke of Newcastle, and walled kitchen garden with glass houses.

Clumber Park is over 3,800 acres (15 km
