Sculpture – House of Knowledge by Jaume Plensa. Chatsworth Hall, Baslow, Derbyshire, United Kingdom.

C3 Weekend away is over.  Between leaving Cliffe College and coming home some of use went over to Chatsworth to see the gardens and the sculptures.


Autumn Colours. Chatsworth Hall, Baslow, Derbyshire, United Kingdom.

However one of the highlights for me was an hours of sunshine recorder actually being used.  Haven’t seen one of these since I left the Met Office over 20 years ago.  And if you think that thing in the middle looks like a crystal ball – you wouldn’t be far wrong as these devices used to be stollen to provide so called psychics with crystal balls!
