We drove here today via the country route through the Cotswolds, echoing for a lot of the journey the route we took last December to Bath.
Although the route and driving conditions were ok it wasn’t the easiest of journeys. Yesterday I gradually began to feel unwell, commencing with the need to dash to the toilet on numerous occasions, during the night I alternated between shivering and sweating with many trips to the bathroom. But you may as well feel under the weather whilst visiting new places instead of sitting at home. So this morning dosed up to the eye balls with medication I strapped myself into the driving seat, gritted my teeth and drove the 110 miles to Devizes.
Devizes is a small market town in the middle of Wiltshire, it developed around Devizes Castle an 11th century Norman Castle, originally there was a Roman settlement here. The Kennet and Avon canal runs around the town with a large flight of locks known as Caen Hill. It began to rain when we arrived and we had a soggy walk around town. When we had finished we drove a further 3.5 miles to tonight’s stop over at Devizes Camping and Caravan Club Site.
Poor wifi prevents me from adding photos tonight.
