A Very Special Day at Chatsworth

Monday 16th July 2018 - 9.30am-4.30pm


The Sheffield Society of Architects and C.P.Hart invite you to a very special day at Chatsworth House, kindly sponsored by Geberit.

The £32.7 million Masterplan to refurbish Chatsworth House began in 2005 and completed this summer – it is one of the largest projects undertaken at Chatsworth since 1828. Our day at Chatsworth includes a unique insight into the works completed, lead by architect Peter Inskip and project manager Sean Doxey, a tour of parts of the house including new spaces and restored interiors, viewing of repaired and conserved stonework and carvings, inside and out, as well as works to improve accessibility and M&E services to this Grade I Listed Building.

The day is sponsored by Geberit, who will lead two seminars in the afternoon, after we enjoy lunch in the opulent surroundings of Chatsworth Stables.


We encourage you to arrive at Chatsworth at around 9am, to enjoy free car parking and make your way to the Stables where coffee will be served and registration will take place.
