Someone in the caravan park this morning suggested we go and see th Caen Hills Locks in Devizes, well why not. Wow what a sight. There are 29 locks altogether from the top to the bottom, all man made. we were lucky enough to see a house boat go through the locks which is not an easy job for the boat owner
After lunch we meant to do a quick trip to Avebury, where there are more stone formations like Stonehenge .This particular feature goes back to 4000-3000 BC. Avebury lies at the centre of one of the greatest surviving concentrations of Neolithic and Bronze Age monuments in Western Europe. It is a landscape of excess in terms of monuments: longer, higher, larger and more numerous. A great place to be and very hard to leave. The town also is known for its Manor House which is being restored at the moment by the BBC but we were still lucky enough to see the gardens.Very much kept in their era and once again you can imagine the people, especially the ladies walking around the gardens in their finery. Good place to visit.
Did not see Bath today as we ran out of time so that will have to wait till next year.
Once again a good day like every other day. Tomorrow we will meet Graham and Carol in Truro and spend 4 days with them on a farm stay. We are both very much looking forward to it. It'll be lovely to see them again as it is time to give Graham a bit of stick again.
Bring it all on.
