Raby Castle – August 2018 – Exterior~part 3


Part 1 HERE 

Part 2 HERE

Now the history is out of the way, lets have a few more pictures around the outside of the castle.

The south front of the castle has views over the lake

 

and from the terrace we could also see some of the deer grazing

 

as we walked up to the castle, looking back we could see the greenhouse

and a little cottage perhaps for the groundsman

we also saw some more deer in the distance

The castle has a huge herd of deer on the estate, which Sophie and I decided to hunt for after we’d done the inside of the castle, and had our lunch!

A couple more of the entrance

the other side

The rear aspect of the castle

Next time we’ll have a trog around the inside of the castle, so stay tooned folks!

  3. Looks like such a lovely place to visit! What nice pictures! The deer also brought back some memories of my recent visit to Windsor – we went on the long walk and a whole herd of deer (dozens of them) just started crossing the trail in front of us!

  10. Your photos are very close to being there for me some thousands of miles away. I find my camera seeks out deer whenever they are about. I admire your ability to shoot other things when the deer are near. 🙂
    Warmest regards, Theo
