Get To Know Trees: Stand Wood Tour at Chatsworth

Join an expert from our landscape team on a walking tour of Stand Wood, learning more about some of the more interesting and one off tree specimens.


2nd May 2024 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join an expert from our Landscape team on a two hour walking tour of Stand Wood. Stand Wood was planted and developed as a backdrop to Chatsworth House, to hide the rocky escarpment that makes up Baslow Edge.

Within the wood, there are native, non-native and more ornamental tree varieties, ranging from shrubs to American and Mediterranean giants. This tour will spotlight some of the more interesting and one off specimens.

There will be plenty of opportunity to speak to our Landscape team and ask questions about the tree collection, how they are managed, Stand Wood and its importance to the Chatsworth estate.

The tour will take place whatever the weather so please dress appropriately. We recommend sturdy boots or wellies and warm wet weather clothes. The route includes some steep inclines and steps and walking along forest tracks with the potential for mud. Unfortunately this tour is unsuitable for buggies or wheelchairs.
