The stable block is the first building that you come across in the park - its enormous - equally as big as the block at Chatsworth house.
Dotted around the edge of the park are several "follies" (i'll get some close ups of these another time). The Fitzwilliam family knew how to spend!! They also have an Estate in Nothants - the Rockingham Estate (associated with the Rockingham Potteries) and they also have a shooting estate in Ireland. They also own a lot of the Moors over in Derbyshire around "The Strines" and still own land in Scotland.
At the bottom of the Park are a series of fishing lakes. Whilst we were there, a couple of very large carp were jumping right out of the water. We also saw a Kingfisher which I haven't seen around here before. What I loved most of all about our walk tonight was the silence. Just the birds singing and no traffic noise. Heaven.
