Inside the Home of the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire

When her husband, Andrew, died and her son became the Duke of Devonshire, Deborah assumed the title of Dowager Duchess and moved from Chatsworth to take up residence at the Old Vicarage in the nearby village of Edensor. She took with her the most important and sentimental things from her full life and continued to live in her own inimitable fashion. She said of the move: “A few precious things are lost in a move but many are found.”
