Dyrham Park is home to an ancient deer park, 17th-century house and formal garden. In 2015/16, the house underwent a huge conservation project to replace the leaking roof and install a biomass boiler. The house and garden are now in a state of transformation and include new tours, areas and exhibitions.

A brilliantly written account of your visit - thank you for sharing. Sorry you missed the money shot of the deer, you'll have to come back again - the deer are usually very obliging when it comes to photos!
