Greenhouses, Chatsworth. Photograph 1987 George P. Landow may be used without permisison for any scholarly or educational purpose.

I suspect these greenhouses were designed by Joseph Paxton, who also designed the Great Stove at Chatsworth and the Crystal Palace, since a contemporary elevation drawing of them appears, unfortunately, without a building, on pp. 144-45 of Kate Colquhoun's biography.
