The Stonebridge Trust / Thoresby Park
Thoresby Park has been owned by the Pierrepont family since 1600. The family takes a full and active part in the management of the many enterprises, which keep Thoresby well maintained, enabling it to survive for the next generation.
Thoresby remains the picture of a traditional country Estate; its’ parkland exhibits all the grandeur of days long gone. However, beneath all this lies the true Thoresby of the present day; a business, a home and a community. The park is surrounded by several thousand acres of farmland and forestry, employing 50 regular staff. The majority live here and regard it as their home; many spend their working lives on the Estate.
What’s on a Thoresby:
