  • Classified: Operation Clumber Park – Nellie at the Chapel at Clumber Park, Worksop, S80 3AZ

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.
