Hardwick Hall

Hardwick Hall was first on my list after York, Unfortunately the really special thing about the building is the textiles inside which you’re not allowed to take photos of (though I got a couple of photos indoors before I was told that it wasn’t allowed) The most interesting thing outside is the way Bess of Hardwick (or Elizabeth Countess of Shrewsbury as she was mostly known at the time) has put her initials and arms everywhere just in case you weren’t aware whose house you were in.
