The owner of Derbyshire’s Renishaw Hall and Gardens, Alexandra Sitwell, has decided it is time that the women in the Sitwell family history should take centre stage, as part of this year’s Mother’s Day celebrations.
This season’s new ‘Mothers, Wives and Daughters’ tour of the historic house tells the stories of some of Alexandra’s most significant female ancestors over four centuries (including Lady Ida Sitwell, pictured above).
The tours will offer a glimpse into Renishaw’s chatelaines of the past, with letters, diaries, paintings, photographs, moving personal items and entertaining snippets relating to the Hall’s ‘leading ladies’, on public display for the first time to bring their stories to life.
This special celebratory tour will make a unique Mother’s Day outing for all the family.
Renishaw Hall’s Leading Ladies tour will take place on March 11 at 11am, 1pm and 2:30pm. You will have to prebook at the visitor centre on 01246 432310.
