Oh Deer, a Trip to Knole!

Hi folks,
what a lovely Sunday we had, glorious sunshine and a trip out was called for.
We plumped for Sevenoaks in Kent and Knole Park and take Winnie the van for a run. After packing our lunch we set off expecting the roads to be busy but to our amazement it was very quite at 11 am on the M 20.

We arrived and parked, on the way up the winding road we were greeted by lots of Deer heading towards the house.

Well it was like feeding time at the zoo, Deer in abundance, being fed by a lady with a bag full of chopped up carrots. (eat your heart out Holly)

I few more for you to enjoy..........................

This young handsome male, his horns are really sprouting.

We spent a wonderful day there in the sunshine  the house was in the throws of a very large renovation which kept us mainly outside which with the lovely weather was not all bad. Next is a view from the car park later in the day as the visitors were leaving.

On leaving all the Deer had left the house area and were in the field down by the entrance so we got the best of the shots earlier in the day.

Thanks for joining us on our trip out.

Best regards, Mike
