Day 28: The great outdoors: Bradgate Park in pictures

If you're from the East Midlands, you'll immediately recognise this landmark.  This is Old John, a folly on top of one of the only hills in Leicester.  Visible from all around the county, it - and the surrounding deer park and ruins of Bradgate House - makes a cracking walk on a fine late autumn day.  I convinced The Boy to play hooky from his academic research during my day off recently, and we wrapped up warm, walked up hills, ate beans on toast in the cafe, "oohed" at deer and generally blew the cobwebs away.  It was lovely.
