Teversal Village and St Katherine's Church

This unspoilt country village is the setting for D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, including an ancient manor house, the fictional home of Lady Chatterley.

The village is designated as a conservation area due to its architectural and historic importance. There are several listed buildings, primarily constructed from local stone and traditional roofing materials.

Silverhill Woods lies within the parish of Teversal and is an ex-colliery spoil heap, which now proudly presents itself as the highest point in Nottinghamshire. The hill is crowned with a magnificent statue of a miner. On a clear day five counties can be seen from this point. The site is easily accessed from either the village or the Teversal Trails.

St Katherine's Church

The parish church of St Katherine still possesses box pews amongst a wealth of fascinating antiquities. The Earls of Carnarvon were the Lords of the Manor with the fifth Earl being the financier of the ill-fated excavation of Tutankhamen’s tomb.

This Grade one listed mediaeval church contains a host of fascinating architectural and ecclesiastical features and treasures including an intricately carved Norman doorway with its 500 year old door and Stuart period box pews.

The minstrel’s gallery still survives along with an array of monuments and other features.
