    Nestled in the heart of the beautiful Peak District and home of the Cavendish family for nearly 500 years, Chatsworth House is one of Britain’s greatest stately homes. Christine Robinson spent three summer holidays working at Chatsworth whilst studying history at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne until, on her graduation in 1977, she began working full-time with the Chatsworth team. Intending only to stay for one year, she, like many others, fell under Chatsworth’s spell and she retired as head housekeeper in 2015 after 38 years’ service.

    In the second half of the 19th century, technology played an increasingly important role in enabling owners of country houses to achieve their ambition of a comfortable house which functioned efficiently and, as far as the owners and their guests were concerned, largely invisibly. Many country house owners played an important role in the improvement and acceptance of many of the home comforts which we, in the developed world at least, take for granted, such as central heating, sanitation, running water and electric lighting. This often meant creating their own sources of supply if they were far from urban centres and so unable to obtain such services from them.
