Spring at Chatsworth House
Derbyshire, England 2014
126 rooms with a hundred of them closed to the public! but at least we got to see 26 beautifully kept rooms. Attention to detail everywhere. Spring tulips in plain terracotta pots such a great contrast!
The Main Hall
The finished results re-gilded door frames & cleaned stone in the courtyard completed....just like new!
And of course one of the reasons for coming the wonderful collection of outstanding lights
Stucco work at the back of the Entrance Hall
Walking into this darkened room.....its all about the view!
The Emperor Fountain built in 1844 by the architect Joseph Paxton....How high?
One of the more modest up-lighters some of which I have in stock simular.....photos on request :-)
