Peacocks from Newark Park

My first impressions of Newark Park are of peacocks. Their influence can be seen throughout the house. In many cultures peacocks are sacred and are a symbol of all-seeing knowledge and wisdom of the heavens. Others believe that they are a symbol of Eternal life, a link between heaven and earth. I found a medieval recipe for roasting a peacock. (Vegetarians and peacock lovers avert your eyes,ha) . It said, "firste ketch a pecok'.
