Oakfield Park is the former demense of the Dean of Raphoe, dating from 1739. It is now a privately owned park, with extensive gardens, a narrow guage railway track with diesel and steam engines, follies and sculptures, and several small loughs and ponds. The gardens are divided in two by a public road, with the upper gardens containing the house. I mirrored this division with separate posts for each part of the gardens, and a third with photos of the swans found on the lake in the lower gardens.

The diesel engine, modelled on Thomas the Tank Engine, with the carriages in the traditional colours of the “wee Donegal” railway.
A hobbit hole!
The Slate Urn.
