Powis Castle Parkland

The sun has been shining brightly and the day time temperature has been in the high teens. Friends of mine decided to make the most of the good weather with a trip to Powis Castle.

As they drove up to the car park they spotted some deer in the parkland and decided that a walk rather than visit the house and gardens was the order of the day.

These are their words:-

“We walked slowly and quietly towards the deer and stopped often. They kept a wary eye on us but kept feeding. We both took lots of photos and also stood and watched and enjoyed the moment.

Every time I felt we could not get any nearer we were able to.

Eventually most of the herd trotted gently away – but one stag remained and we stood about 12 metres from him. He looked directly at us every now and again and then went back to grazing.”

“Such a treat to be that close to deer.”

What a wonderful experience and no one else was there to enjoy it.
