Glossop E.G.@ Chatsworth House 2019

Glossop and District EG are holding their second exhibition at Chatsworth House from 9th March 2019 – 22nd April 2019. Members are exhibiting work comprising a range of stitched textile art on the theme of The Devonshires: their history and their houses.

The Cavendish Chatsworth story began when Bess of Hardwick (1527-1608) married William Cavendish of Suffolk (1505-1557) in 1547. They bought the Chatsworth Estate in 1549 for £600 and the family have developed and cared for the property and land since that time.
