If you find that organising electrical jobs at your workplace can be hard work at times, imagine the challenges that those running major landmarks have to face. Here, we look at some of the awe-inspiring stats of some familiar landmarks.

 

Chatsworth House


Located near Bakewell in Derbyshire, Chatsworth House is the home of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, passed down through 16 generations. The original dwelling on the estate was started in the 1550s, but has been largely rebuilt over the years, most notably between 1687 and 1707, with later works including a North Wing with a sculpture gallery.

The estate comprises a stately home with works of art spanning 4,000 years, plus gardens, parkland, farmyard, farm shop and restaurant.

A £32.7m Masterplan to review the building’s structure and renovate the house began in 2005 and is due for completion in November 2017.

• Number of rooms: 126
• Number of visitors annually: around 750,000
