Pronounced ‘Ensor’, this is a Chatsworth Estate Village, hence all the ‘estate blue’ paintwork. The original Edensor stood closer to Chatsworth but was cleared in the 1840s and rebuilt around the church. The diversity of the houses are said to be due to a whim on the part of the architect, who built each one in a different style taken from his pattern book. Edensor church contains a flamboyant monument to two sons of Bess of Hardwick, builder of the great Elizabethan mansion which was the first Chatsworth. Her ducal descendants have far more modest monuments in the family burial plot behind the church, last resting place too of Kathleen Kennedy whose brother became President of the United States.
