Information for fishing permit holders - 2018

View of the temple from across the lake

There are a few changes coming into force for 2018, as a direct result of the vandalism of the Ornamental Bridge.

Following the vandalism to the ornamental bridge earlier in the year, access to the south side of Clumber Park is restricted for vehicles.

These restrictions are likely to be in place for some time to come and as a result for the 2018/19 fishing season we are introducing temporary restrictions to the areas where fishing will be permitted. During this time fishing will no longer be permitted on the south bank of Clumber Lake between the ornamental bridge and the area directly below the temple. All other restrictions still apply. To reflect this we have held the permit prices at last years.

We have also retained the series of set fishing times. As before if anyone is found fishing outside these hours or acting outside of the Code of Conduct then we will have no option but to revoke their permit and no refund will be given. 

We are continuing to offer both 2 and 3 rod season permits and 2 and 3 rod day fishing tickets. When purchasing any permit the appropriate EARFL licence will need to be provided.

You will also note that the season permit allows free access to the Park during the fishing season for the named permit holder only. Any additional visitors, whether fishing or not, will be subject to the normal entrance fees. These entrance fees also apply to anyone purchasing day tickets. 

Clumber Park Revitalised:

Clumber Park is embarking on an exciting new era – a £9 million programme to revive and revitalise the Park.

Clumber Park is a special and important place, one of just a handful of Grade 1 registered parks in the country and enjoyed by many people. In fact it is the second most visited National Trust place in the country. 

The programme aims to:

* Restore areas of heathland and important wildlife habitats

* Bring the historic Walled Kitchen Garden and Pleasure Grounds to life

* Open up historic views across the Park and protect ancient trees

* Improve visitor facilities including the café, shop and  toilets

By buying your permit, you help to look after this historic landscape for future generations to enjoy.

If you wish to purchase a fishing permit, enquire about prices, or have any concerns at any time please do not hesitate to contact us on or call 01909 476592. Thank you.
