Lincoln represents an interesting mix of ancient and modern, with the bright lights and bustling shops of the city centre existing alongside the thousand-year-old ramparts of Lincoln Castle and the Gothic splendour of its Cathedral. Lincoln can also be reached by train from the village.
Clumber Lake is a serpentine lake covering 87 acres (352,000 m²), south of the site of Clumber House and extending 2 km to the east. The lake was partially rebuilt in the 1980s and again in 2004 after suffering from subsidence from coal mining. Hardwick Village lies within the park, near the eastern end of the lake.
