Chatsworth House

Standard

Today and this coming weekend I want to share with you old pictures from places I have been that have affected me in some way because of their beauty. I thought I’d begin with my favourite place in all of England – Chatsworth House.

Last year me, my mum and my cousin visited what I call Pemberley.. thanks to Joe Wright’s film version of Pride and Prejudice. Here are a few pictures of the things I loved the most!

Beautiful ceiling in the entrance – unfortuantley the lights were too dim to get better pictures.

We also got to see Keira Knightley’s costumes from ‘The Duchess’.

And then came the statue as seen in Pride and Prejudice… ( as well as the Mr Darcy statue)

And then to my favourite room – the statue gallery. When I was younger I was always afraid of statues and mannequins, for fear that they’d come alive at any moment. Now I still retain some of that fear, only now I am more in awe of the marble statues. They’re somehow delicate yet strong, their stillness and beauty a constant. Wherever I go now, I take pictures of statues.

Though I have hundreds of shots from this room, here are just a few…

I’ll post exterior shots of the house and garden soon!
