Chatsworth Stable Block
Chatsworth Stable Block
Looking east to the main entrance as the setting sun highlights the stone. James Paine designed the ornate stable block for the 4th Duke of Devonshire in the 1760s. This richly decorated building was to make an imposing statement for the then new park, with accommodation for 80 horses and staff quarters above. The quadrangle design was based on William Kent's 1732 design for the Royal Mews at Charing Cross. These days it houses restaurants and shops, but members of staff still live on the first floor.
