The Friends of Thynghowe
Local people from the three Nottinghamshire village history societies in Clipstone, Edwinstowe and Warsop were introduced to discoveries made along the route of the 1816 Perambulation of the Lordship of Warsop. As a result they formed the Friends of Thynghowe group, to further investigate the Birklands area and the site of Thynghowe. The aim of the group is to protect, conserve and enhance the heritage of the area.
We wish to make the historical, cultural and natural heritage of the area accessible, on all levels, to local people and to visitors to the Sherwood area.
