Milton Mausoleum Open Day

Milton Mausoleum, Milton, North Nottinghamshire.
Open every Sunday afternoon from May to September 2 - 4pm 

 

Milton Mausoleum is one of the most historically important buildings in Nottinghamshire and is the county's only surviving mausoleum.

It was created by the 4th Duke of Newcastle in memory of his beloved wife who died at the age of just 33 giving birth to twins who also sadly died. (Together they already had 8 sons and 6 daughters).

Designed by Sir Robert Smirke it is part parish church and part mausoleum. The mausoleum itself is built from local Roche Abbey stone taken from the then recently demolished public baths in Tuxford, stone from Worksop Manor and red bricks from kilns in Tuxford.  Building started in 1824 but it took until the end of 1833 to be completed.

 

The mausoleum's history is fascinating and the building itself is well worth a visit.

During the summer Milton Mausoleum is open every Sunday afternoon between 2pm and 4pm
