On Saturday 8 September, we’re inviting people to come together and raise money for people affected by cancer. We’d love you to join us on our biggest walk of the year in Clumber Park.
Over 2 million people are living with cancer in the UK, and over 200,000 of those are in the East Midlands and South Yorkshire area. We want to help every one of them, but we can’t do it without you.
Clumber Park, situated in Sherwood Forest, was once home to the Dukes of Newcastle. Clumber House was demolished in 1938 though the classical bridge over Clumber Lake, Gothic style Chapel and Walled Garden still remain. Clumber is also home to the longest double avenue of Lime Trees in Europe with 1296 trees lining it from the entrance of the park.
This walk is mainly on tarmac surfaces, suitable for pushchairs, wheelchairs and mobility scooters. though Clumber is not described as "hilly" there are inclines to negotiate. There is an opportunity to look out for the Green and Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, heather in flower and maybe even Jacob Sheep.
This event took place on Saturday 8 September. We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who took part. Why not sign up for another walk instead|?
This longer walk takes you over the lake, along roads, woodland rides and tracks, through broadleaf woodlands, coniferous plantations, healthland and the lakeside. Look out for the Green and Greater Spotted Woodpeckers, Jacob Sheep, Long Horm cattle and also the heather en-mass in bloom.
An amazing experience that we will never forget. A huge challenge, but the great people, amazing scenery and team spirit made it achievable. Thank you to Macmillan for all your support. Alison Steadman, Actor
