My little boy and I took a stroll around Dunham Massey Deer Park at the weekend – arriving just in time for our first taste of 2016 sunshine. It was late in in the afternoon and I was quite taken at the golden glow that the sun’s rays laid across the place, lighting up the ponds and wildlife alike. Dunham is a beautiful National Trust property and a great place to get up close-ish to the deer that are left free to roam on the estate. Photography buffs will find loads to focus on, with the hall and gardens, trees, grounds and wildlife all providing lots of different angles. There’s a relatively recent visitor centre, cafe and shop and it looks as though they’re spending a little time landscaping the grounds in time for summer. It costs £6 to park and I was reliably informed (in spite of signs declaring otherwise) that that includes admission to the deer park and gardens. You can of course pay a little extra for admission to the house.
