Very nice Lee, I enjoyed that.
I have a shameful admission - it was only this September that we visited Chatsworth for the first time !
Mrs I has wanted to go for a long time and we've just never got round to it. Glad we did and we'll certainly be going back again.
We almost had to be kicked out as the closing time had been & gone and we eventually saw a chap starting to lock things up, luckily he held off until Mrs I paid a call
I particularly liked the opening & closing globe/flower head fountain in one of the smaller/upper ponds - all controlled by water flow (it could have kept me amused for hours).
Noticed the family crest/emblem is very similar to that at Holker Hall near Cartmel, it seems the two families are inter-linked.
