    Thanks.
    Bob has obviously never been savaged by a delinquent plastic duck, those of us that have will fail to see the humour!
    Are we agreed on this venue, or does the search continue?
    Regards Dave.

    I've looked but cant really find anymore that are in/next to a pub - if someone else can please let us know. Now, how about locations. there's the obvious of course, but there is also Uffington White Horse/ Dragon Hill not too far away ( 20 mins drive or so), Silbury Hill ... All quite challenging subjects to do justice to though - anymore?

    Venue is fine with me. If necessary I can provide a linen basket for Dave, although he'll have to find his own reading matter...

    Location-wise, ISTR a nice flight of canal locks at Devizes (about 9 miles from Avebury) on the Kennet and Avon canal, there are plenty of little villages about if thatched roofs are your thing and, given the reason for our gathering, it would seem churlish not to pay Lacock a visit (about 17 miles from Avebury)...
    The destination is important, but so is the journey

    The Barge Inn at Honey Street has a campsite. They close it at some point in October, but exactly when depends on the weather (they worry about the shower block freezing !). Their number is 01672 851705. I've spoken to the landlady, June, and she said that they may be prepared to open up the site if asked nicely. The Barge is a lovely pub on the Kennet and Avon canal.

    Just around the corner is Well Cottage ( 01672 851577 , http://www.well-cottage.org.uk) They have three double rooms. Apparently, these need to be booked well in advance. No mention of dicks or linen baskets on their website...

    Alton Barnes/Honey Street is a very nice location in the Vale of Pewsey, just down the road from Avebury.
    Heat or light; it depends on your sensitivity.

    I do hope that was a typo there Allan!

    honey street sounds good - does the pub have B&B rooms too, or only the other place you mention?

    It would appear not.

    Interesting place, though!

    I think, on balance I'd have to vote for The Inn With The Well with six rooms as opposed to three at Well Cottage (I'm a big softy with a canvas allergy! ).

    Love the sound of The Barge Inn:
    The Barge has become the official site for the discerning Crop Circle Investigator. Everyone who is everyone congregates at The Barge to socialize and swap tales on their experiences in the fields. If you are a new traveller to England for the Crop Circles, this is the place to visit for up to date information on what's happening, and will give you the chance to meet some of the influential individuals within the Crop Circle Community. ... The public House has a special room at the rear dedicated to crop circle research, with two walls filled with diagrams and maps on where to find them, and a representation of the patterns themselves.
    Crop circle research??? As in: "What is the best kind of string"? - "Is it best to use a 3 inch or 6 inch wide board to flatten the barley"? or, "How many crop circle researchers does it take to generate enough credulity to power a small light bulb"?...

    Finding a place with enough rooms at a (fairly) sensible rate is not proving as easy as the Lake District, but at the moment it looks like the Pub with the duck and window in the floor has it....
