Description

The Chatsworth Tour helicopter flight covers one of the most spectacular stately homes in the country and also tracks over well-known areas of the Peak District National Park including Baslow and Bakewell.

The impressive Chatsworth House dates back to 1552 and is of the English Baroque architecture. It is the ancestral home of the Cavendish family, The Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The 1000 acre park with 105 acres of garden and magnificent water features are clearly visible from the air and together with the property, emphasises the true grandeur of the Estate within Derbyshire.

Baslow is set beneath a gritstone edge and is made up of 5 “Ends”, Far, Nether, Bridge, West and Over Ends. Firstly there is the leafy Goose Green at Nether End, where a narrow packhorse bridge leads past the pretty thatched cottages to Chatsworth House. Then at Bridge End the graceful 17th century bridge has a small tollhouse with the nearby church of St Anne on the east bank of the river Derwent.

Bakewell straddles the River Wye and sits between the rolling limestone hills of the White Peak and the dramatic escarpments and moors of the Dark Peak grit stones. It is the only market town within the boundaries of the Peak District National Park. its alluring courtyards, shops and cafés make it a popular tourism destination. All Saints Church was built in the 12th century, with its delicate spire being added around a hundred years later in 1340. Bakewell itself dates to Anglo Saxon times, and became a market town around the middle of the 12th century. Bakewell was once connected to Manchester via the now closed midland railway. Although much of the railway now forms part of the Monsal Trail, a local railway preservation society has plans to reinstate the line between Matlock and Bakewell in the near future.

Flight Path: Baslow, Bakewell and Chatsworth House.
