The centre has been funded by an attic sale of items in 2010. It has cost more than £2.5 million to build.

The Duke of Devonshire, said: “By using funds raised from the attic sale the past is playing its part in providing Chatsworth with a sustainable future by helping reduce our carbon footprint and supporting the on-going maintenance of our woodlands and ecosystem.”
