Restoration of the Long Range glasshouse

Restoration work is almost complete on one of Clumber’s iconic features, the Grade II listed and longest glasshouse in the care of the National Trust. The rotten timber glazing bars and ventilation sashes have been replaced, corroded iron work renewed and the glasshouse re-glazed.

We'll continue to fundraise to reach our target throughout the Autumn.
