Today I was also involved in a meeting to implement some new energy-saving strategies across the property. We are looking at more insulation in the mansion and stables, led lighting, timer switches on the hydro boilers and radio chargers and secondary glazing amongst other things, and hopefully many of these will be put in place in the near future. It takes a bit of planning to do these things due to historical and aesthetic considerations, especially around the mansion.
The deer are looking their best at the moment - bright summer coats, antlers in velvet and the fawns are starting to make an appearance now that they are fast enough to run with their mothers. It's a beautiful sight so next time you are in the park, remember your camera!
