Wiltshire at dawn - the tourist trail

Lacock With the clocks going back at the weekend, it's no longer possible for us to show delegates on our courses some of the lovely Wiltshire countryside after we're done with training for the day. Which is a great shame when there are lovely places like Lacock Abbey around. So this morning ... we went out before breakfast to see a few of the sites at dawn.


CalneWiltshire is all a'bustle with commuters in the hours before 9 a.m. (and few of them can use public transport, which is inadequate!) so this morning's tour was very much a case of 'llok for the quiet places" to avoid 90 minutes of A350 traffic jams. So here we are, off the normal tourist trail, in Calne - well known as the former home of Harris's sausage factory, with the heart being ripped from the town when it closed.


AveburyAnd on to Avebury stone circle, with the road passing through the middle, and the Red Lion - said to be "the only pub in the world within a stone circle". Even here, I had to wait a while to snap a picture that wasn't a line of cars heading up from West Wiltshire to Swindon for work.


Near AveburyAs it grew lighter, the pictures got better - here's a further picture taken on the Marlborough Downs, and our guest on his second trip (ever) to England had a chance to take in a little of the countryside. He tells me that his first trip was a short stop at Heathrow as he transferred to a flight to Iceland ... and that he's got a far better impression this time.
