The Chestnut Centre

Helen and Ian are staying at The Willows with us at the moment and on Tuesday Ian drove us down to Derbyshire where we met up with Bryony and Mark at the Chestnut Centre.

Fallow Deer

Snowy Owl

Harvest Mouse

Giant Otter

I am only showing a few photos here but unlike Helen and Mark, who can content themselves with a couple of photos, I feel the need to show loads of photos so I've also added this webpage. There are lots of photos on it so it may not load very quickly.


  1. Fantastic webpage! Very picturesque place, and incredible pictures! Were the otters moving around in the open or are there fences? Thanks for taking us along!

  2. The otters are in enclosures (they bite!) but you can lean over to take the photos without obstruction. The exception is the Giant Otter which, unless you are well over six foot, is seen through glass or wire or from high up platforms looking down on his whole domain which is very big. They all have plenty of space to roam around in.


Comments are always welcome.
