A spokesperson for LeaseCar.uk said: “Autumn is the perfect time to get wrapped up and explore the outdoors with the family.

“Collectors should be cautious of the spikey green casing around the seed and only collect conkers which have fallen to the ground. The green casing splitting apart is a sign the conker has ripened.”

LeaseCar.co.uk described Clumber Park as “a hot spot for conker finders, due to its plentiful horse chestnut trees dotted all across the park.”
