We met at the village of Ticknall, in south Derbyshire and had arranged for us both to walk to the nearby stately home of Calke Abbey. I hadn’t realised it would involve passing through a field of cows, who were all lying down chewing the cud, and I noticed one of them was a lot fatter, and fuller than than the rest….”Hey, isn’t that a bull?” I asked as we passed by. “Yes” Stuart agreed “He’ll be calm if he’s with his herd” and I was incredibly pleased and relieved to note that that was indeed the case. We walked through woods and through the beautiful parkland and came out by the large house. It’s not a very attractive house, quite square and heavy looking I always think. But we weren’t there to look at the house, and passed on and up the hill, towards the little church. But we weren’t there for that either. We were heading for something far more interesting.
