Every month, we’re stepping back in time to meet characters from Calke’s past. Join us on this journey as we discover the people who lived and worked on the estate, and then meet their modern-day equivalents who help to keep Calke alive.
This April, we’re introducing Frederick Bates, who kept the gardens growing at Calke Abbey between 1886 and 1911.
This March, we're investigating Agg Pegg, Head Gamekeeper at Calke Abbey.
This month, we're investigating Harriett French, the Housekeeper at Calke Abbey.
