A 2-week Christmas 2005 vacation in England gave us the chance to revisit Wiltshire. We were so impressed by our 2004 trip (below) that we went out of our way to visit Stonehenge's 'sister' standing stones at Avebury and also an 800-year old Norman bridge at Bradford-on-Avon.
During our February, 2004 trip, following an afternoon of cruising along the Cotwolds on the A433, we started to look for a B&B for the night as we approached Bath. Our first meander off the road in the little town of Chipping Sodbury was not successful, as we also did not really like the appearance of the town. Since we had finally managed to pick up some tourist information while in Chipping Campden, Glocestershire, we actually had something to consult for once. A glance at the literature mentioned a possible B&B in Corsham, Wiltshire so we adjusted our course for there. We were happy to do that because we did not really want to get involved with a larger centre like Bath. We ended up hitting the jackpot and over that evening and the next day, we had a really great time in Wiltshire! The old Abbey and its associated village at Lacock as well as a return to Stonehenge 23 years after our first visit were both memorable! Then, it was off to Devon for the next stage of our trip (or refer to my Surrey page for the beginning of our 1200-mile journey though southern England).
