The View Over the Deer Park
The view over the Deer Park, shows in the forground the
Sunk Fence or Ha Ha which lies on the south side of the Dark Arch [Tunnel]. The fence is generally gone today although a few posts are still to be found, bent and twisted like the remaining old oaks that still inhabit the efdges of what is now an arable field.
The deer in the image give a clue to the exposure times that early photographers had to contend with, the movement during grazing being sufficient to create ghosting.
The oak tree survives on the field margin, this one is close to the west entrance of the Dark Arch and was thought of so highly that a brick retaining wall was built to allow it to remain just a few feet away from the railway track running along the line of the sunk fence, behind the tunnel. The thin line of grass at the bottom of the image is the roof of the Dark Arch. Below shows the trunk of the oak, the brick retaining wall and the west entrance to the Dark Arch.
