Chatsworth, the ancestral home of the Dukes of Devonshire, will be reopening to the public on 18th May 2021.

Opening on the same day will be the redisplayed Devonshire Hunting Tapestries, a rare set of fifteenth century wall hangings that were sold from the collection after World War II in lieu of death duties. The tapestries have been loaned back to Chatsworth from the V&A in London will be on display in the Sculpture Gallery for the whole of 2021.

Update - A reader has been in touch pointing out an interesting line from the 11th Duke of Devonshire's memoir Accidents of Fortune, in which he expressed "I cannot pretend I miss the tapestries" (pg. 47).
