Mr Monkey at Dunham Massey, 9th March

"That's the most sinister summer house I've ever seen"

Mr Monkey looking at the Slaughter House Mr Monkey looking at the Island Pool

Mr Monkey left the carriage drive and scampered across to the main drive for a look at the Slaughter House. This was originally a place to store venison after the deer had been slaughtered somewhere else, but during the 19th century it was used as a summerhouse. Mr Monkey didn't think it looked at all summery, and thought that having windows that were just painted on wood was a little creepy. So he ran off down the main drive and didn't stop until he got to the Island Pool, one of a number of small lakes installed by the 2nd Earl.
