Out in the thick of Potterne woods.
We got off the bus at the Porch House in Potterne, and made our way through thick and thin towards the Great Western railway line, where trains pass on their way to to Bristol and the West Country at one end, and Paddington in London at the other. I wanted an express train to add glamour to the photo, but only a slow goods train chugged past at the appropriate moment, see below.
Twelve of us enjoyed the 4 mile walk, which finished in "The Lamb" in Urchfont, where we enjoyed baguettes with assorted fillings, and a good drop of English beer and cider.
