Item description for Chatsworth: A Landscape History (Landscapes of Britain S.) by John Barnatt & Tom Williamson...

The seat of the Cavendish family since 1549, Chatsworth is more than a great country house: it is one of Europe's finest designed landscapes. This book tells the story of Chatsworth's gardens and park, a grand, thousand-year narrative that takes us from a small Domesday settlement to Elizabeth Frink's sculpture of a stallion, set proudly at the head of the Canal Pond.

John Barnatt and Tom Williamson show how Chatsworth's history is like a tapestry. Particular individuals -for instance 'Bess' of Hardwick, the successive Dukes of Devonshire, 'Capability' Brown and Joseph Paxton - come and go, weave their distinctive threads, and then move on. The authors trace these threads backwards and forwards in time, showing in detail the process of landscape evolution. The book:

combines original archival research and archaeological survey in a multi-faceted 'garden history';
is richly illustrated with photographs, historic maps and paintings from Chatsworth's own collections;
reveals for the first time the details of the medieval and earlier field systems and settlements which underlie the park.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
