Walking the Darnley Trail (Part 2)

Apologies for the delay – it’s been a busy week – but here, at last, are the rest of the images from my walk along the Darnley Trail.  This was towards the end of September, as autumn was just getting started.  In one of the images, you can see Darnley Mausoleum through the trees.  In his will, the 3rd Earl of Darnley instructed that it should be built as a final resting place for himself and his descendants.  The mausoleum was finally completed in 1786 but was not consecrated, possibly because of an argument with the Bishop of Rochester, and so could not be used for burial.  Now owned and maintained by the National Trust, the mausoleum is open from time to time to members of the public.  Perhaps I’ll visit one day.

In the meantime, here are my images, in a gallery as usual.
