Legacies of War project

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund

In October 2014 the Devonshire Educational Trust (DET) received a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF)  to enable education visitors to explore the impact that World War I had on the Chatsworth estate.  This created an exciting new collaborative project using research from the Devonshire Collection and archives. The project included an outreach programme and a special event to commemorate the anniversary of Gallipoli with local primary schools.

The Chatsworth in Wartime teachers' resources pack (pdf 860 kb) will help you to discover what happened at Chatsworth during the first and second world wars.   

If you require any further information on the project, please don't hesitate to contact our education team via education@chatsworth.org
