Roe Deer Fawns - Dora's Field, Rydal, Lake District

Chris Monks

Warrington, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

These two Roe Deer fawns were amazingly blasé about our prescence and didn’t appear to mind me photographing them. A beautiful surprise on a wonderful walk around Rydal Water in the English Lake District.

The Rash field was bought by William Wordsworth to originally build a house for his daughter Dora. It lies below his house at Rydal Mount. This never happened but the field was inevitably called Dora’s field when Dora died in 1847. William and his Wife, together with their gardeners, planted hundreds of daffodils in her memory. Dora’s Field now belongs to The National Trust.
