My parents were visiting last weekend and we did lots of driving around in my car (see earlier!). Happened to coincide with a burst of unseasonably nice weather. Went to a couple of good places including the Didcot railway museum.

On the Saturday afternoon we journeyed way out west to White Horse Hill.


It’s got a giant chalk carving of a horse and the remains of an iron age hill fort. What more could you want! Avid readers might remember I travelled through here on the way to Swindon last year.

But there’s more! A mile or so down the path there’s this 4500 year old burial mound called Wayland’s Smithy. I don’t think the parents were too impressed. Still, I like it.
