Belton House will have an unusual floral display this month - a carpet made entirely of flowers.

Visitors to the National Trust property will be able to view the display from above in the Chapel Gallery.

The design is being kept a secret until the display opens on Wednesday, September 11.

Catherine Granger, House and Collections Manager, said: “We like to find different ways to inspire and surprise our visitors and this is a chance to see the Chapel in an entirely different light. We last created a Carpet of Flowers in 2008; it was a huge success and a real talking point.”

The display will be open from Wednesday to Sunday, September 15, from 12.30pm to 4.30pm.

The idea was inspired by well dressings in the Peak District and floral designs in the West Country.

Admission to the House and Grounds will be £12.80 per adult, £8.25 per child or £34.80 for a family ticket and free to National Trust members.
