Legacy of a formidable woman...

This is the splendiframous Hardwick Hall, built by one of the most powerful characters in Tudor England, Elizabeth Countess of Shrewsbury but known universally as Bess of Hardwick.
She was four times married, had eight children, was one of the richest nobles in England, a personal friend of Queen Elizabeth I and lived to the age of eighty… quite a piece of work!
