Classified: Operation Clumber Park - Nellie

Have you explored the top-secret project Nellie yet?

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

During the Second World War Clumber Park was the testing ground for a top secret project, instigated Winston Churchill. Code name: White Rabbit/NELLIE was a 25 metre long trench digging tank, so why is project Nellie still such a well-kept secret 80 years after the outbreak of the War? At Clumber Park we have installed a replica of the trench digger and are exploring this story and the unexpected positive effect it had on our landscape and habitats.

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points.

Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission
  • Standard Admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you a clear choice between the Gift Aid Admission prices and the Standard Admission prices at the admission point. It's entirely up to you which ticket you choose.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below:

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00

 

*Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid - an extra 25 per cent - potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

Please note...

National Trust members go free.

Charges cover the entire site, including the Walled Kitchen Garden.

All entry points are cash only.

*Gift Aid disclaimer: Includes a voluntary donation of at least 10% which will be put towards the restoration of and upkeep of this property. If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete a Gift Aid declaration which will allow the National Trust to claim an extra 25% from the Government on your total payment. You will be asked to pay the Gift Aid Admission unless you request to pay the Standard Admission.

~Group Rate applies for 15 or more people irrespective of number of members/payers
