A Journey on the Bodmin and Wenford Railway

A Rainy Day at Monkey World, Dorset

Monkey World in Dorset is home to over 250 monkeys from 20 different species. It was setup in 1987 and was intended as a home for abused chimpanzees from Spanish beaches but is now home to many more primates from all…
