Group Description

Bestwood and the Mill Lakes form a large Country Park on the north of Nottingham City. The site is a refuge for a host of wildlife, and a gateway for access to the wider countryside.

Once part of the ancient hunting area of Sherwood Forest, the parkland was made the property of the Duke of St.Albans, the first being the son of Charles II and Nell Gwynn. The estate has been used for forestry, farming, hunting, the colliery and iron industries, sand extraction, and military training.

It is now in the custody of Nottinghamshire County Council and Gedling Borough Council.
