Chatsworth Christmas Markets -
An Announcement on Tuesday 12th November: : "Restricted access for 15-17 November Due to the recent flooding, combined with the current and forecast poor weather, many of the areas we use for parking cars are currently not safe, and will not improve until after the weekend. As a result, we have taken the difficult decision to limit access to Chatsworth and the Christmas market on 15, 16 and 17 November for those travelling by car, to people who have already booked tickets for the house, garden and/or farmyard on these days, Gold and Silver Friends of Chatsworth, or those with a booking at one of our restaurants. Unfortunately, anyone who does not fall in to one of these categories will not able to access Chatsworth or the Christmas market during these three days by car. We apologise for any disappointment this may cause, but we must prioritise the safety of our visitors and staff. We are hopeful that conditions will improve nex
t week, and will be posting regular updates. The market will still be accessible by bus - go to https://www.chatsworth.org/your-visit/how-to-find-us/#bus  "

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Monday 18 Nov - Wednesday 27 Nov
A frosty start to Monday with some patchy mist or freezing fog. The rest of the day will be cold and cloudy with some showers across eastern areas, staying largely dry in the west. Despite low confidence in this period, the start of next week should be drier and brighter for many but it will be cold. There is a possibility of rain in the west, which may fall as hill snow at times. By the end of next week, there may be a switch to relatively milder conditions with winds becoming more southerly. Further rain and strong winds look to continue in western areas initially with a risk of snow on higher ground. Meanwhile further east, drier and more settled weather is expected.
Thursday 28 Nov - Thursday 12 Dec
The start of the period will see some settled weather in the east with rain, strong winds and possible gales in the west. Through early December, confidence remains very low but there could be a period of more settled weather across much of the UK. This would bring drier conditions for many through the day with a chance of frost and fog developing overnight. Temperatures look to be around average for the time of year.
