Photographer's Note

Taken at Bradgate Park, Leicestershire from the deer sanctuary that the public are not allowed to walk, this was a special guided tour that told how the deer were managed and controlled as they have been for 800 years.
To the right are the ruins of Bradgate House



The park was cleared by the Greys of Groby in the 15th century; the construction of Bradgate House was begun in 1490 by Sir John Grey, 7th Baron Ferrers of Groby, the husband of Elizabeth Woodville and the ruins of the house are still visible at the centre of the park. The house was the birthplace of Lady Jane Grey, later Queen, ruling for a mere 9 days before being overthrown by Mary I.
