Waitrose's Christmas TV ad features a place familiar to a lot of folk on here, probably the snow is a little deeper.

Beats Painting Windows

Beautiful day down here in the South, so we took Florin out for a circum-navigation of Salisbury at a 12/15 mile radius.  Travelled mainly on unclassified roads & single tracks over our plains, dales & river valleys.  Blew the cob-webs out for a few hours & only turned for home as the sun set & the temperature dropped.


It's amazing how many minor roads close to home have been forgotten or never travelled over, wonderful views in the brassy autumnal sun.

This is a very interesting collection --- most appear to be air-worthy or road ready, there is also a beautiful garden & buildings to explore -----well worth a days visit.
