The Garden Guide

Clumber Park

The house, built in 1770, was demolished in 1938, but the stables, entrance gate, chapel, park and gardens survive. Formerly, the estate was part of Sherwood Forest. The park has a lake, what is claimed to be the 'longest double lime avenue in Europe', a classical bridge and temples. Brown, Repton and Knight advised on the design.The Lincoln terrace, a lakeside walk, was designed by William Sawrey Gilpin and has been restored by the National Trust. The focus of horticultural interest is the 4 acre Walled Kitchen Garden, complete with 450feet Long Range glasshouse, traditional fruit and vegetable varieties and Museum of Gardening Tools.
