3 hours from Milton Keynes

I finished training at the end of Friday in Milton Keynes ... with a 2 to 3 hour drive home through the traffic travelling to start the Bank Holiday. Why rush it? I kept off the motorways, and stopped on the way to take a picture or two. Here are some of the images from the beside road from Milton Keynes to Melksham ...

Walton Hall, the Open University
Walton Hall, the Open University, Milton Keynes

The Oxfordshire Countryside
Wind Turbines in the Oxfordshire Countryside - taken from the A420 between Faringdon and Shrivenham.

Near Shrivenham
Where the A420 (Oxford to Swindon road crosses the main London to Swindon and South Wales Railway, you'll find this twin arch bridge. It didn't always look like this - originally, the arch you can see on the left was for the road ... and the Wilts and Berks canal passed through the arch on the right.

Silbury Hill
Silbury Hill, near Avebury on the Marlborough Downs

Near Windmill Hill
Bailing the hay, on the Marlborough Downs - near Windmill Hill.

The Spa, Melksham
And so to Melksham - the old Spa houses on the Devizes Road, pictured in the low evening sun.
