Hever Castle

On the way home from our brief trip to Sussex and Kent, Harriet and I stopped off at Hever Castle.  It was a dull, grey day; and, since we had Amber with us, it wasn't possible to go inside the castle itself.  This was more than made up for by several marquees which were groaning with food from local producers.

Hever is famous for its topiary, as will become apparent from several of the pictures which follow.

Having exhausted the hedges, I turned my attention to the various specimens of Homo photographicus which were wandering around.

OK, so some of them weren't exactly "photographicus"...

The final shot shows some of the amazing ornamental carp which were swimming in the moat and begging for food from the passers-by.
