Clumber Park
St Mary


The Chapel at Clumber follows the continuing convention here of having no churchyard attached or within the grounds of the Estate; there is no physical distinction between the wider, landscaped estate and the church building. The Newcastle family members who died were placed in a variety of gravesites around the country, some temporarily, such as Bothamsall, where the Duke and Duchess had planned to erect a new church, to serve as the parish church, but later to be transferred to the family Mausoleum at Markham Clinton in Nottinghamshire, designed by Sir Robert Smirke.
