“Look out for the ancient and mysterious sites of Stonehenge, Avebury and Silbury Hill; the great houses and gardens at Longleat, Bowood, Wilton, Stourhead; our villages and churches; Georgian Bradford-on- Avon and the chalk White Horses and the Fovant Badges etched into the hillsides. You will enjoy photographs of the strip lynchets along the downs where sheep have grazed for centuries; the big open farmland, the Ridgeway, the chalk streams; Salisbury Plain and the Army’s presence along with the Great Bustards – they are all here.”
