The new Hardwick Hall

Friday August 22,2014

Hardwick Hall was designed for Bess of Hardwick, Countess of Shrewsbury. It was a very elegant house but soon was not up to date so she built another house (the one in the picture.) Her old house in now in ruins but you still can tour it. Her new house is a tapestry mania. There is at least 5 tapestries in each room.
