Chatsworth goes bling!

From Issue No. 267 | April 1, 2018

Not since the Windsor Castle fire has there been a makeover of one of our national treasures on such a scale. Indeed, the restoration of Chatsworth House has cost only a few million pounds less than the £37 million lavished on the castle.

However, the facelift of Chatsworth, in Derbyshire — where Keira Knightley’s heart as Miss Bennet first fluttered over the brooding Mr Darcy in the big-screen version of Pride And Prejudice — was prompted not by adversity but because its owner, the Duke of Devonshire, had no wifi.

That became the trigger for the biggest, costliest and longest refurbishment of his family seat, garden and surrounding parkland for almost 200 years.

Chatsworth House which sits in the stunning Derbyshire countryside in front of a large lake is currently undergoing a £33million revamp to bring the home, owned by the Duke of Devonshire, back to its former glory
