Part of the Ilkeston Cam "Days Out" Series

Chatsworth House and Gardens - Part 03
w/e 18 April 2020
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

With the lockdown conditions due to the coronavirus pandemic continuing, we have been following the advice to stay at home and hence there are no "new" images. The photos below therefore are just a random selection taken back in October 2007 during our day out at Chatsworth and thus, are new to the website. These images then form part 03 of the day out at Chatsworth even though it has been nearly 13 years since our visit.


The courtyard in the Stable Block has a fountain in the centre and also a statue of a horse.

The horse statue peers through an archway and on the day of our visit was proving popular by children sitting on its back.

Inside the house are many treasures including colourful artwork on the walls and ceilings.


There are also many impressive staircases ....
Ornate Room

.... and this is one of many ornately decorated rooms.

One room was full of sculptures both traditional and modern and included a RB-211 jet engine fan made by apprentices at Rolls Royce in Derby.
Salisbury Lawns

The immaculately mowed Salisbury Lawns were laid down by Capability Brown in 1760.
Emperor Fountain

The gravity-fed Emperor Fountain is capable of reaching a height of 298 feet.
South Face

The south face of the house.
To Flora's Temple

The path back along the east side of the house leads to Flora's Temple in the far distance but it was here that we followed another path to the right to explore more of the gardens.
