Wiltshire

Went to witshire to visit my dad today, it was a lovely day so we went for a walk around Barbury Castle, which lies on the Ridgeway (an ancient trackway described as Britain's oldest road. It is an 85 mile (137km) route that follows the chalk hills between Overton Hill, near Avebury and Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire.)

Barbury Castle

It was very picturesque (you'll have to take my word for it as we left the digital camera at home). Barbury castle isn't a castle per se, just a circular fortification around where the castle was, but it was interesting nonetheless to think of the effort that went into building the fortifications.

After Barbury Castle we went to Stanton Park which was if I'm honest not that interesting. Probably beacuse it has been quite dry, but as there is a lake there I was hoping to see more wildlife.

As I'm writing this I know that you cannot read it. I came home to find out that my domain had expired. The company I'd paid to renew it has dissapeared. Hopefully my blog will be back tomorrow once I've sorted it all out.
