Full Description

Hine was responsible for … the elaborate unfinished chapel at Clumber House for the 5th Duke of Newcastle (1864). Demolished by the 7th Duke and replaced by the present church. (1)
The 6th Duke had begun to build a chapel at Clumber in memory of his father in 1865; work on this ceased in 1868 and it was left unfinished for several years. This short-lived structure, dedicated to the Holy Trinity, was designed by T. C. Hine of Nottingham in the severe French C13 Gothic manner popular in the 1860's but out of fashion by the 1880's when the 7th Duke took it down and re-used the stone for his own chapel. (2)
There was an earlier chapel sited nearer to the house and shown in views of the house and garden drawn earlier in the C19. (3)
