Does anyone out there on EPZ know if there are any locations at Chatsworth where deer generally gather?
I'm looking to take some deer-in-the-mist shots and would welcome any location suggestions from those that may have found any good spots and willing to share.
Thanks for any advice,

You could try Bradgate Paul, a little south of Chatsworth, Jun of M1 signposted Ashby and A511. Only head the other way towards Leicester.
There is a quite "famous" shot from there by Mark Hamblin of deer in mist.
Not sure how accessible or easy to find the deer at Chatsworth are, for instance, at Calke abbey they are in a separate area not open to public.
Found the image here
At least he told me it was taken at Bradgate
as Cheryl staes not a bad place to visit for the deer
Best time is early morning before the dog walkers etc; disturbe them + there is a good chance of early morning mist at the moment
Use the Linton village entrance
They often gather in and around the trees above and left of the approach road to the house. 255 710 on the White Peak map.
Thanks. I would prefer Chatsworth as it's a lot closer (just 5 miles from my house) so easier get to.
Thanks for the tip, Chris. Will get the map out and take a look.

Not really, I just like convenience
Sunday afternoons at Chatsworth House are pretty good for Old Dears if that's any good
...and plenty of hinds & harts
We may see a new sport at next year's show. Shooting Old Dears. That'll be in the arena straight after the Shooting The Staked Out Rabbit competition.

They're often to be found in Cambridge Wood during the day but you need to find a quiet, hidden spot and wait for them to come to you.
Thanks Tez and Chris.
Cambridge Wood is even closer - I can walk there from my gaff
