From the centre hung an octagon rack with hooks for the smaller birds all ranged in order; and round the wall was another rack for pheasants, hares and rabbits.
John Claudius Loudon, 1842
The larder afforded some wonderful opportunities to create an imaginative visitor experience that is insightful, thought- provoking and enjoyable.
Audio can be a very effective way of building atmosphere and helping transport visitors to a different time. The focus was on people stories and their experience of working at Chatsworth. For example you can hear the Duke Of Devonshire introduce the history of Chatsworth Game Larder or enjoy Head Gardner – Steve Porter talk about the rich array of plants and fauna.
