Funnel web spider at Hever Castle

On Thursday I went to Hever Castle – it’s a beautiful place and well worth a visit.

A quick search later and it looks like I stumbled across the home of a Labyrinth spider.

I might have to add a funnel web to the next Dragon Tongue book. I’m sure Rispin Quill would be delighted to meet one of these beauties.
