I have visited this National Trust property many times over the last 23 years. It never fails to disappoint. Twice this month so far to enjoy the autumn colours, walking the grounds exploring the church, underground reservoir, pools, ancient trees and the deer park. My wife and I became philosophical by the"old man of Calke". Over it's (his?) lifetime we wondered at what it had silently witnessed. Membership of NT is essential to these days out- we wouldn't be visiting so often if we were condemned to pay each time. I encourage you to join. My gift to my God children will be life membership when they reach 18. I wish someone had done the same for me.
