One of my favourite places . . .

. . . to be on a bright sunny day is the top of Roundway Hill, which, as the crow flies, is about 3/4 mile from our house. From the top of the hill you can see for miles in all directions and, apart from birdsong and the odd piece of farm machinery, it's a very quiet and peaceful place. Looking north-east:


due north:

east, over the top of the white horse carved in 1999, towards Pewsey Vale.

and east again, noticing the spire of the church in Bishops Cannings:

Our white horse is a new one, carved for the millenium, but it has become part of the old White Horse Trail, well worth visiting if you are in our part of Wiltshire
