by ITV Central

Visitors to the Chatsworth estate have joined in the party atmosphere with a 100-metre picnic table, to celebrate the diamond jubilee.

The celebrations have been set up in the Chatsworth House garden as part of its special Coronation exhibition that’s been opened to display the robes that were worn by four generations of the Cavendish family at the Queen's Coronation in 1952.

Hundreds of visitors at Chatsworth House joined in the 1950s-style street party in the garden, which had traditional village fete games and snacks.

The long picnic table was filled with visitors enjoying the special day and the dry, although grey, British weather.

David Jackson, who lives close to the estate, said he and his wife came to the stately home to celebrate the jubilee and "join in the fun with everybody else."
