The Aqueduct
The Aqueduct
Looking east up the hill in Stand Wood to The Aqueduct, built by Joseph Paxton in 1839 for the 6th Duke of Devonshire. Water tumbles over the end to supply the Cascade Pool, which in turn feeds other water features in the Chatsworth garden. Ruined aqueducts were very much in vogue in Germany at that time and the Chatsworth structure was inspired by a similar one at Schloss Wilhelmshohe near Kassel. No water flowing over the end at dusk as the supply has been switched off to facilitate filling the reservoir lakes for the following day - see SK2670 : Emperor Lake .
