September Afternoon in Clumber Park
by Richard Harpum MA
About this Painting
Clumber Park is one of the Dukeries and is located in part of what is left of Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire. It is now a National Trust property and my wife and I visit often and walk in the 3,800 acre park.
Unfortunately, the main house was demolished in 1938 after a major fire but the Gothic revival chapel remains and is a prominent sight around the park, especially along the lake.
I took this painting from one of a series of photographs I took in September this year and was particularly taken by the atmospheric and peaceful feel of the late afternoon. Until I started studying my photos, I had not appreciated just how many swans and other waterfowl there are at Clumber.
