Charlecote Park

Although a little chilly we decided to go to Charlecote Park this morning.   It stayed dry, if a little windy and we had a coffee in their new cafe and took a walk to have a look at the deer.  There was a notice saying the deer now had their full head of antlers but as a result may look bloody and have bits of hanging skin.  Some did but they still look magnificent. The deer were resting in the long grass, see extras.

The park has its own church, St Leonard, home to the tombs of the Lucy family, owners of Charlecote since 1558.  Today was the first time we actually visited the church and we had a look round the graveyard. I went in and took a look at Lucy Chapel where some of the ancestors are interned.  The second extra is Sir Thomas Lucy, lying in repose by his wife.

I quite liked the way the light was coming in through the door and windows of the main church.
