Clumber Park, formerly the park of a country house called 'Clumber House' which was destroyed by fire, is a country park now owned by the National Trust and open to the public. The structures which remain include an outstanding Gothic Revival Chapel built by the 7th Duke of Newcastle and fine walled kitchen gardens.
At Clumber Park, Croft converted the existing Laundry Cottages to a shop and ancillary accommodation, erected Plant Sales, Café and Information & Recruiting Shelter buildings together with associated drainage and landscaping works. The works included the removal of the existing single storey structure including specialist removal of asbestos, and the construction of a raft foundation under a traditional brick structure with a Welsh slate roof and lead roof. Internally there was a bespoke joinery package, specialist quarry floor tiles and decorations.
A more recent scheme completed by Croft at Clumber Park was to the walled kitchen gardens where we re-pointed the walled kitchen gardens, cutting out and replacing defective bricks as necessary, and took off and re-bedded stone copings and replacing with matching new stones where required.
