A visit with the Stroud U3A photography group to The Bird and Deer Park.
They have lots of birds, ducks, deer and goats, who all want to be feed!
It was a cloudy day, with one glimmer of sunshine
Swans: white, black, and black and white
There are various follies – some for children
Prinknash Abbey is across the valley
The estate belonged to Gloucester Abbey from the 11th century until the dissolution of the monasteries, and monks returned here in 1928
The monk’s garden is being restored
