Chatsworth: The Housekeeper's Tale by Christine Robinson
Much has changed in the 40 years since Christine Robinson joined the staff at Chatsworth House, and as Head Housekeeper, she probably knows Chatsworth better than most.
Her tale invites the reader to go beyond the door marked 'private' and join her on a fascinating journey through the day-to-day care of one of England's best-loved country houses, revealing an enticing hidden story of parties and celebrations along the way.
For many generations, Christine's family and that of her husband, have worked on the Chatsworth Estate; walked the land, raised their children, played their part in making Chatsworth the vibrant, compelling and enthralling place that is enjoyed by tens of thousands of visitors every year.
With a foreword by the 12th Duke of Devonshire.
