The Lower Library at Chatsworth House, Derbyshire in the time of the 11th Duke of Devonshire.

The 11th Duke died in 2004 and was succeeded by his son, the current
Duke, Peregrine Cavendish, 12th Duke of Devonshire. The 11th Duke’s
widow, the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire, died on 24 September 2014. 
She was responsible for many additions to the gardens, including the
maze, the kitchen, the cottage gardens and several commissions of modern
sculpture. She also wrote seven books about different aspects of
Chatsworth and its estate.
