Deer Sighting at Mellor Mill!

Last Update 4 Sep 2016 · Posted 4 Sep 2016 · Pamela Pearson

A young deer has been spotted at the site of Samuel Oldknow's Mellor Mill.


Last week at Mellor Mill we were minding our own business when suddenly a young deer was spotted at one of our excavation sites!

Whilst fallow deer are famously resident in nearby Lyme Park, it was a big surprise finding one roaming free here at Mellor Mill.

One of our canny photographers was able to catch a snap of our visitor just before it scampered off...
