The band of rain decided to move a bit slower than originally forecast, so it was a pretty miserable morning outside in Stockport; therefore we delayed our morning walk until the afternoon when it was forecast to be drier. We had been to Dunham Massey many times with Isabel but we had always stayed inside the deerpark for our walks. I had recently noticed that there was another neighbouring park called Dunham New Park that I decided to go and explore today with a walk taking in it together with Dunham Park.
I set off walking from the main NT carpark at around 2:30pm with Isabel in the rucksack carrier to avoid having to lift the pushchair over the stiles on the north edge of Dunham Park, which I thought would be quite tricky to do on my own! It was dry but overcast as we walked past the front of the Hall and out into the deer park; however we didn't have to walk far to see deer as there were some right in front of the Hall!
