In Search of Pemberley
It is a truth universally acknowledged that an American visiting England must be in search of the real life Pemberley...and find it I did! Two of them, actually. Below, a few photos from our visit to England's Peak District, home of the most beautiful country estates, two of which have been featured as Pemberley in different Pride & Prejudice adaptations. First, the Keira Knightley Pemberley, or Chatsworth, as it's actually known:
And then the BBC Pemberley, Lyme Park, where we wandered the grounds through the light rain until closing time...
P.S. A fascinating glimpse at the life of the late Duchess of Devonshire, Deborah, who passed away last year.
