Chatsworth

Much belated photos from Chatsworth, which we visited at the end of April on a day of torrential rain. We loved, loved, loved the house, and Emily took lots of photos of the details and furniture she liked, being particularly enchanted with the (dusty!) wooden carvings over the doors and the snake emblem which cropped up everywhere. We hated, hated, hated the modern sculpture which obscured the view from the fountain to the house, and which littered the path towards the house, one piece of which looked for all the world like a big red skip and the rest of which looked like rusted square blocks. Um – why? There’s a time and a place for that kind of sculpture, but obscuring one the most famous views in the country isn’t it.
