To finish this visit to Elvaston Castle Country park near Derby a single shot from the Walled Garden, to one side of the estate. This was officially closed by the time we got round to it so I popped in and took two quick shots of one area and stitched them together to make this. Sadly, the ongoing lack of funding and attention from the Derbyshire County Council over recent years has resulted in the Castle and grounds beginning to run heavily into disrepair. As a result, the castle itself is now in desperate need of restoration and, as such, is rarely open to the public nowadays. However, despite the continuing erosion, the estate still continues to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors a year.
