Thursday 2 May, Thursday 4 July & Thursday 26 September | 10am to 12.30pm

£16 per person

Join an expert from our Landscape team on a two hour walking tour of Stand Wood. Stand Wood was planted and developed as a backdrop to Chatsworth House, to hide the rocky escarpment that makes up Baslow Edge.

Within the wood, there are native, non-native and more ornamental tree varieties, ranging from shrubs to American and Mediterranean giants. This tour will spotlight some of the more interesting and one off specimens.

There will be plenty of opportunity to speak to our Landscape team and ask questions about the tree collection, how they are managed, Stand Wood and its importance to the Chatsworth estate.  

The tour will take place whatever the weather so please dress appropriately. We recommend sturdy boots or wellies and warm wet weather clothes. Please note that dogs are not permitted on the landscape tours. The route includes some steep inclines and steps and walking along forest tracks with the potential for mud. Unfortunately this tour is unsuitable for buggies or wheelchairs.

If you would like to join this event and have questions about accessibility, please contact us at education@chatsworth.org so we can discuss your specific requirements.

Please meet at the entrance to the Stables, under the Stables Clock Tower, at 9.50am.
