Long term thinking is part of Chatsworth House’s DNA; the conservation of buildings, woodlands, streams and rivers, moorland, hedgerows, and pasture all requiring a cycle of management that continues to sustain this special landscape for future generations.

With that spirit of stewardship inherent to life on the estate, we now recognise our responsibility to address the new sustainability challenges of our time, such as climate change, natural resource scarcity, and enhanced threats to wildlife diversity and habitat.

This visit will feature a presentation from Rachel Parkin, Education Coordinator at Chatsworth House which will cover:

  • Chatsworth’s history
  • The Green Agenda at Chatsworth
  • Natural Heritage and Biodiversity
  • The use of Water over the years and now
  • Waste
