Friends of Milton Mausoleum

The Friends of Milton Mausoleum are pleased to begin this year with a full list of events planned for you to enjoy. 2022 is a special anniversary year for Georgiana, 4th Duchess of Newcastle, who died on 26th September 1822, and she will be the focus of some of the events.

Events begin with the Friends’ Sunday Lunch at the West Retford Hotel on Sunday 10th April. Go along with friends, enjoy lunch together from the new menu and find out more about this historic building.

Each year, from May to September, the Mausoleum is open on Sunday afternoons from 2.00pm to 4.00pm, when volunteers will give you a tour of the building and share the story of the 4th Duke and Duchess of Newcastle. Tours can be organised for parties or groups by arrangement.
