Bradgate Country Park

Mike and Pat Clarke, who run the very successful North Midlands Group, would like to warmly invite everyone to the next meeting of the group, which will take place on Saturday, 20th October. Attendees are invited to an early morning walk in the beautiful surroundings of Bradgate Country Park.

Bradgate Park’s extensive area of parkland is well-known for its herds of fallow and red deer, which will provide the opportunity for everyone attending to capture some very atmospheric images of the deer. The attractive valley of the River Lin runs through the park which also contains the remains of an Elizabethan mansion, and a further photographic opportunity.

The entrance to Bradgate Country Park is situated in the picturesque village of Newtown Linford in Charnwood Forest, Leicestershire, which lies to the east of the M1 and can be approached from Junction 22 or 23. The postcode for one of the shops opposite the entrance to the Country Park is LE6 0HB. Pat and Mike suggest that everyone meets in the first car park on the right-hand side of the entrance road, as this is the largest parking area.

Time to meet:

10.30 a.m. for those members coming from a distance


8.30 a.m. for early birds

As usual, you may find it useful to bring a tripod with you. You may wish to bring a packed lunch or, alternatively, there are cafes and pubs in the village as well as a café and visitor centre within the park.

You are most welcome to attend this photo excursion by yourself or with other family members, no matter where you live in the UK.


If you would like to join Mike and Pat on this photographic outing, would you kindly send an e-mail to Gillian Greenwood ( In addition, please add your name to the thread on the message board:
