Cattle and figures, including marching soldiers, in the landscaped grounds of The Park Estate, a 150-acre private residential estate just to the west of Nottingham. It was built in what was once the deer park of Nottingham Castle. Major development began in the 1820s under the fourth Duke of Newcastle, despite much opposition from locals, who regarded the area as public land. Development continued under the Fifth Duke, Henry Pelham Clinton, who appointed Thomas Chambers Hine, the city's finest architect, to design the great houses. Today, the Park Estate is one of the most remarkable residential estates in the whole of the United Kingdom, and although many of the huge Victorian Gothic mansions have been converted into flats, it retains much of its original character, including the original gas lighting network believed to be one of the largest in Europe.
Not in Abbey Scenery.
