Archaeology & History of King's Clipstone, Nottinghamshire

Archaeology & History of King's Clipstone, Nottinghamshire

About
A decade long research project on the archaeology and history of Kings Clipstone & New Clipstone, Nottinghamshire in the heart of Sherwood Forest.
 
Description
Lying in the heart of Sherwood Forest the villages of King's Clipstone and New Clipstone have a remarkable history. This heritage includes the site of a mediaeval royal palace known as the King's Houses, fascinating links to the estate of both the Earl of Newcastle and Duke of Portland and in more recent times the expansion of the settlement brought about by coal-mining. This page will focus on the rich tapestry of history and archaeology in both villages including regular updates on research projects as new evidence is uncovered.
