Chatsworth is about a 45 minute drive from where we live and so it can be a very pleasant trip out to go there. The setting is wonderful and you are allowed to roam quite freely and picnic on the banks of the river and bathe in the river etc....and be inspired to write a Wordsworthian poem!!! The house I find makes me uneasy because I look at this opulence and can't help but think immediately of the extensive poverty in the world...but it also is a wonderful historical resource...what you remember of history learnt at school comes back...and there is a wonderful hall with a staircase and a beautiful painted ceiling where I attended a private concert one summer's eve.....

Ooh, I didn't know another volume had come out. I know I have a book token around here somewhere...
