Chatsworth in Derbyshire is filled with exceptional artworks and antiques, but one of the most intriguing pieces is a rare needlepoint depiction of the original Chatsworth House. Dating from around 1550, this important piece provides a vital and evocative connection to the past.  

In the fifth of Huntsman's short films for Sotheby's, which take you inside the corridors of Chatsworth and up close to this extraordinary snapshot of the house's past, discover the earliest representation of Chatsworth House as we know it.
