Friends Of Milton Mausoleum

We were delighted to welcome a visitor from America on 5th May 2022.                                                   

Lady Patricia Pelham Clinton Hope, eldest daughter of the 9th Duke of Newcastle under Lyne, Henry Edward Hugh Pelham Clinton Hope and Lady Mary Dianna Montagu Stuart Wortley Mackenzie, is visiting Clumber Park the former family seat of The Dukes of Newcastle to plant a Cedar of Lebanon tree as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee.

A supporter and member of The Friends of the Mausoleum for many years, she was very appreciative of the work that The Churches Conservation Trust and The Friends group at the Mausoleum are doing to maintain the history and fabric of the building.

                                                                                   

The building is now open for our seasonal Sunday afternoon openings from 2pm – 4pm.

Come along and find out about the 4th Duke of Newcastle and his wife Georgiana, 4th Duchess of Newcastle.  Our volunteers are happy to welcome you to this historic place. The statue of Georgiana, has been professionally cleaned thanks to donations and fundraising from our supporters and friends.
