Mid-May 2012: A new documentary about the Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire on 14th May saw the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and the Dowager Duchess speak of their pride in winning the first (and, to date, only) Countryside Alliance Lifetime Achievement Award.
You can watch from 47 mins 15 secs for the Duke, flanked by the Duchess, telling his staff about the Award (pictued), then discussing it with the Dowager Duchess at 40 mins 10 seconds. Click here.
The documentary was also extremely positive about life on a country estate, the farm, farm shop, produce, local jobs and enterprise and the grit and determination of country life.
The Countryside Alliance made a short film about the Estate's Award last year, featuring the Duke and Estate Manager Nick Wood. Watch it below.
