Thoresby Courtyard is home to the Permanant Collection, the life’s work of Marie-Louise Roosevelt Pierrepont. A selection of drawings and paintings from the collection are on show throughout the year in the Loose Box Gallery.
Thoresby’s new military museum, The Queen’s Royal Lancers and Nottinghamshire Yeomanry Museum was officially opened by HRH Princess Alexandra The Hon Lady Ogilvy KG GCVO on 26th July. This beautifully refurbished space spans the front of the Courtyard, itself imaginatively converted from the old stables, coach houses and riding school, originally belonging to Thoresby Hall.

An ‘All Our Stories’ project supported by The Heritage Lottery Fund
Local historians have been fascinated by the impact of the Second World War on Thoresby Estate. The regiments in Thoresby Park and Hall were recorded in watercolour by artist, Marie Louise Roosevelt Pierrepont, (Countess Manvers). Paintings from the Pierrepont Collection bring to life the military requisitioning of Thoresby Park during the Second World War and visitors have often shared their stories.
This project has enabled Thoresby Volunteers to learn skills to explore the Pierrepont Collection, and related archives and then to develop a celebratory exhibition, blog and archive for future generations.
