Full Description

Chatsworth Park was traditionally enclosed for the first time in the 1 5th century. The boundary of the Elizabethan park survives to this day. Except for occasional gaps it is marked by a wall still, prehaps in places by the original wall. [Course plotted on Record Sheet taken from a survey of Chatsworth, 1617.] (1) A substantial wall survives along the majority of the indicated line, but in no way differs from the general stone walling of the area.
