Chatsworth House in Derbyshire, UK

Went on a visit to my local stately home yesterday, Chatsworth House. Not into the house but in the gardens. The famous Emperor Fountain was running at a reasonable power, it is gravity fed from a lake some 500 feet higher than the fountain and this can push the fountain to a height of 300 feet.

The fountain now is a listed Grade II building in its own right.

    Nice work.

    If God wanted me to touch my toes, he would have put them on my knees.

    Beautiful estate. Great cloud day too. Would like to get a better look at those statues lining the reflection pond.
