Happy Wiltshire Day


Recommended Posts


I can't believe that this momentous day isn't engrained into my iPhone calendar by default. 

Still, have a good day Shads and may you proudly fly your Celtic football flag with a turkey on it.

To be fair, it's got both Avebury and Stonehenge.

That's where Lancashire pinched its Unfinished Look.

Obviously, it already had ugly birds with croaky voices.

And Salisbury Cathedral, and one of the original Magna Carta copies, and the oldest working clock in England (thought to date from the late 14th century and is believed to have ticked over 500 million times!) and a bit of the New Forest (the bit where Shadow lives) and parts of the North Wessex Downs, to name a few more notable attributes.

I am not a native of Wiltshire, but do appreciate its merits.

It has two locations from the 1967 movie "Far from the madding crowd" - in Devizes,  there's also the  staircase locks there on the Kennet & Avon canal.

Sounds ok, but it’s not Yorkshire
