    Sounds good to me, count me in!

    I have family reasonably near Avebury and spent a good chunk of my childhood in that area, so it'd be really good to revisit!

    yep - even if I end up just driving up for the Saturday. It's only 45mins drive from here, so I'll definatly make an appearance, though I might not be able to stay over.

    Hey! I might be Sandwich that week. Can I join in on the fun? I'll try to stay a few more days and make my way over after business, instead of going to London like I usually do. Always interested in seeing all these big stones placed in large circles all over the place!

    I always feel that one should suffer for one’s art. It is therefore incumbent on me to study all forms of photography, even that discarded in hotel linen baskets.

    Bump... and a bit of info about camping. One of the two sites near Marlborough closes at the end of Sept and the other has zero facilities: not even an on-site toilet (the site is mainly intended for caravans, which have their own). On a slightly better note, there is a very good site at Calne with full facilities, but Calne is about 8 miles west of Avebury and Marlborough is about the same distance east of Avebury...

    Cheers, Bob.

    In that case, assuming that Calne has a hotel ( with an interesting linen basket) in which to rest my old bones (in the hotel, not the linen basket) we could base ourselves there; could we not?

    Ditto, given the provision of a bed for the night (or two).

    A quick note though; my attendance is currently on-again-off-again, owing to a few issues in my life. At the moment I'm still planning on being there, but I'm afraid this may change at short notice...
    The destination is important, but so is the journey

    It would appear (http://www.visitus.co.uk/list.aspx?r...D=8&town=CALNE) that around Calne you have the choice of a bedroom in a large country house, e.g. Heddington Manor , or Chilvester Hill House or next door to a pub: Marsh View Hotel) for about the same money give or take a tenner... Decisions, decisions...

    Weather permitting, I'll be camping...

    Bob.
