Chatsworth Gardens and its "Revelation" Water Display

The renowned British sculptor Angela Conner created the Chatsworth decorative exterior fountain called “Revelation.” In 2004/2005 she was commissioned by the late 11th Duke of Devonshire to design a limited edition bust of Queen Elizabeth, in brass and steel, for the Queen’s 80th birthday. In 1999 Revelation was mounted in Jack Pond, one of Chatsworth’s earliest ponds. The four large steel flower petals open and close with the flow of water, alternately camouflaging and revealing a golden globe at the sculpture’s heart. be_131__70654.jpg The sculpture’s dimensions are five meters high by five meters in width and incorporates a metal globe painted with gold dust. This newest water feature is an interesting and interesting extension to the Gardens of Chatsworth, because the motion of petals is entirely run by water.

The Outcome of the Norman Conquest on Anglo Saxon Gardens

The advent of the Normans in the later half of the 11th century considerably transformed The Anglo-Saxon ways of living. Engineering and gardening were abilities that the Normans excelled in, trumping that of the Anglo-Saxons at the time of the occupation. But home life, household architecture, and decoration were out of the question until the Normans taken over the entire population. Monasteries and castles served separate purposes, so while monasteries were large stone structures assembled in only the most fruitful, wide dales, castles were set upon blustery knolls where the people focused on learning offensive and defensive tactics. The sterile fortresses did not provide for the peaceful avocation of farming. The early Anglo-Norman style of architecture is represented in Berkeley Castle, which is perhaps the most unscathed sample we have. The keep is thought to date from the time of William the Conqueror.

A big terrace meant for exercising and as a way to stop enemies from mining below the walls runs about the building. A scenic bowling green, covered in grass and bordered by battlements clipped out of an ancient yew hedge, creates one of the terraces.
