Saint Mary's Church (Chorister's House) Studley Park, Ripon, North Yorkshire

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

**Standing proud within an ancient 400 acre deer park, this magnificent Burges designed property promises panoramic views across the World Heritage Site of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal. Built in 1873, its name stems from the fact that it was originally a music school; today it offers a spacious and unspoiled setting for up to 10 people to stay. The interior captures the Burges style, whilst also reflecting the historic setting of Studley Royal park: a continual home to herds of deer for the past 500 years.

It is the perfect base for anyone looking to explore the spectacular surroundings of Fountains Abbey or slightly further a field, York, The Dales and North Yorkshire Moors. There is a small enclosed lawn area to the front of the house, beyond that is the deer park, home to over 400 red, fallow and sika deer**

Magic! Now I understand where the name came from. This is the sort of building that would entice a crusty old Aussie to UK. Very special. The deer herds would be a sight to see. Love this pic Richard. L&F mate! Regards, Jock.

hi Richard what a grand old how you centered this and with that could hanging just over head:)) I also read up here that there are a lot of deer on the property, that would be another good reason to visit this lovely old church and the property all around. have not been on pano very actively lately, but wanted to come by and say hello. hope you are well, and that springtime has arrived for you over there.

warm summer greetings....~~Sarah~~
