Join an expert from our landscape team on a walking tour of Stand wood, exploring the historic waterways which feed the Chatsworth Estate. The tour will guide visitors to the lakes at the top of the Stand Wood, before following a trail through the historic woodland discovering the water courses and human interventions that are dotted throughout.

This tour will offer plenty of opportunity to speak to our landscape team and ask questions about the historic water courses and how they are managed, and 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. The route includes some steep inclines and steps and walking along forest tracks with the potential for mud. 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 top of Lodge hill outside the entrance to the stables (under the clock tower).

A Celebrating the Cascade event

Our new Celebrating the Cascade wellness sessions have been designed to delight and inspire you. We invite you to enjoy the calm and beauty of nature in the garden and wider landscape. Find balance as you step away from daily routines and pause with us by still and flowing waters. We invite you to open your heart and mind to the environment and connect with our wonderful surroundings.

The Celebrating the Cascade project is made possible with The National Lottery Heritage Fund. Thanks to National Lottery Players, the project is working to restore the Cascade, safeguarding it for the enjoyment of future generations and enabling more people to get involved with Chatsworth.

If you would like to support this project, please make a donation to Chatsworth House Trust here.
