A photo mosaic of the Cascades at Chatsworth House made from photographs of gardens from around the British Isles. The Cascades were designed by a French hydraulics engineer and completed in 1696.
Chatsworth House, a stately home in Derbyshire, stands on the east bank of the River Derwent and looks across to low hills between the Derwent and Wye valleys. It has extensive gardens and a park extending to around 1000 acres.
The Cascades are a favourite of family visitors to the garden at Chatsworth House. On a sunny day you can paddle and picnic while enjoying stunning views across the Derwent valley.
The original house was built for Bess of Hardwick who lived there until her death in 1608. It was bought by William Cavendish, the 1st Earl of Devonshire and has remained with the Cavendish family ever since, being rebuilt around the turn of the 18th century.
