And now pictures taken by students on photography courses at the 700-acre nature haven have gone on display.

The courses are run by Wells photographer Julia Rafferty and have grown from a one-day standalone experience, to a six-week course in each academic term of the year, run in the morning for starter students and in the afternoon for the more experienced.

“Pensthorpe is a photographer’s delight,” said Ms Rafferty. “It has so many inspiring environments to work with all year round; it is amazing. We’re always finding lots of new things to photograph.”

The exhibition is open until Spring 2018 and there is free entry during park opening hours. For information contact Julia Rafferty at wellsphototutor@gmail.com.
