Welbeck Abbey near Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire was originally the principal abbey of the Premonstratension order in England.
Following the Dissolution of the Monasteries, and a substantial re-building programme, it became the family seat of the Dukes of Newcastle. Subsequently, it passed through the female line to the Earls and Dukes of Portland.
