A snowy week at Chatsworth

Over the past week we have had some very extreme weather here at Chatsworth, with over 2ft of snow falling and the temperature dropping to an astounding -17 degrees.  As a result the house, garden, farmyard, shops, restaurants and garden centre were forced to close on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. The Farm shop was closed on Wednesday and Thursday, but has managed to re-open again today.  

 

Only those staff living locally or those brave enough with 4x4s have made it to Chatsworth over the past few days. There have been plenty of tracks left in the snow across the park, mainly by staff walking from the neighbouring villages of Edensor, Beeley and Pilsley. There's been a real community spirit here, with everyone lending a hand to try and clear the roads and paths so that the house can re-open to visitors over the weekend. The heavy snowfall hasn't kept everyone away however, with someone being spotted skiing through the park, avid photographers such as our own Diane Naylor and Matthew Bullen braving the cold to take some beautiful shots of Chatsworth in the snow, and even a crew from Channel 5 News filming on Wednesday.

 

The house, shops and restaurant will re-open tomorrow, so we hope to see you there soon!
