Chatsworth House- 19th May 2011

Just arrived home from my second field trip of this term: Chatsworth House. Lovely looking house, bit of a shame the west front was covered in scaffolding though! The interiors contained a wonderful collection of sculpture (my favourite being the Veiled Vestal Virgin by Raffaele Monti pictured below), Egyptian artefacts, Minerals, China plates and wonderful, illusionistic wall-paintings! My favourite part was the water cascade, however we ran out of time to go in the maze and the rockery :( Will have to visit again!
