Chatsworth in the Peak District

Chatsworth House, Peak District

We didn't really know what to expect when we went to the Peak District.  Sure, I'd watched Pride and Prejudice (Mr. Darcy's home is in Derbyshire and the scenes from Pembroke were filmed at Chatsworth House, above), but I didn't realize it would be so green.  It reminded us forcefully of Ireland because emerald shades greeted us wherever we drove.  We couldn't help but be charmed by this green, green, green part of England.
