Clumber Park

Blyth Rd Nottinghamshire S80 3AZ

Owned and operated by the National Trust, Clumber Park is one of Nottinghamshire’s favourite days-out with cyclists and walkers. Get your bearings at the old stable block, which is now home to the main visitor centre, and then wander off into the surrounding woodland, which is criss-crossed with cycling trails and footpaths. The estate was once the property of the Dukes of Newcastle, who created a long and slender lake in front of the family mansion, though this was demolished in the 1930s. The main ducal remain is the handsome Gothic Revival chapel, an imposing structure with a soaring spire and an intricately carved interior built for the seventh duke in the 1880s.
