Nov 16, 2019 - Honeystreet ( 51.352767N -1.8603420W

We moved on today about 5 miles to a place called Honeystreet. Luckily it was dry all day. And we have been very lucky since we left Wootton Rivers that we haven't had to take down the roof for the bridges as they are all somewhat bigger than we've had so far. The white chalk horse is not far away. This is the Alton Barnes White horse (there are several of them in Wiltshire). The horse is approximately 180 feet high and 160 feet long and was cut in 1812.

Nov 15, 2019 - Salisbury Cathedral

The view from the top of the bus on our trip to Salisbury this morning. These bus drivers are incredible the way they have to manouver through narrow lanes and parked cars. You don't see a road sign like this very often. We went through a military area, covering a large area, and tanks cross the roads in a few places. We passed Stone Henge on the trip too. This cathedral was built in the 13th century, (1220 - 1258) over 38 years, using 60,000 tons on stone, 2,800 tons of oak and 420 tons of lead. The spire is Britain's tallest and...

Nov 10, 2019 - Autumn

The Beech trees are looking really nice at present, it won't be long before they are completely bare. There were so many of these large holes in one area of the woods that I wouldn't have been surprised if the ground had opened up and we had done an Alice in Wonderland!!! We have a few of these lovely bullfinches in the trees across from the boat.

Nov 9, 2019 - Getting dark earlier and earlier

We didn't go out for our walk until after 3.30 yesterday and by just after 4 the sun was starting to set. So we cut the walk short only going about 2km before turning around, not wanting to get caught out in the dark. We've had some rain over the last few days, although Thursday was beautiful sunshine most of the day, but they are really suffering in the midlands with flooding.

Nov 5, 2019 - We got a pew!!

Surprise,surprise, surprise!!! We moved on to Pewsey this morning, expecting to have to pass through, but we just managed to squeeze into a spot which must have been vacated very recently. This statue of King Alfred stands at an intersection in the village and was erected to show the local approval of the crowning of King George V. A lovely big old church dating back to around 900AD, There isn't a clock face on the Church tower, the ancient clock rings on the hour.
