Clumber Park - Photography Week 43 (2016)

Clumber Park is one of four neighbouring country houses and estates in an area of north Nottinghamshire known as the Dukeries. Originally the seat of the Duke of Newcastle, it is now a country park owned by the National Trust.

The estate is a mix of woodlands, open heath, farmland, and at the centre is Church of St Mary the Virgin and Clumber Lake. The original mansion house was demolished in the 1930's and the only surviving features are the walled garden and the glass house which now form the visitor centre.

These are a selection of images taken on a walk around the lake in search of autumn colours:

Before leaving the park I stopped to capture the colours on Limetree Avenue - a two mile long double avenue of lime trees and one of the main features of Clumber Park:
