Description
Clumber Park

Extensive and varied area of parkland and woods

The park comprises over 1,500ha (3,800 acres), including peaceful woods, open heath and rolling farmland, with a superb serpentine lake at its heart and the longest avenue of lime trees in Europe. Part of Nottinghamshire's famed 'Dukeries', Clumber was formerly home to the Dukes of Newcastle. The house was demolished in 1938, but many fascinating features of the estate remain, including an outstanding Gothic Revival chapel and walled kitchen garden with spectacular glass houses, growing old varieties of vegetables
