Geo-Trips :: The Berks/Wilts borders

Aldbourne

A drive from Twyford, Sun, 30 Jul 2017 by David Howard

Aiming for a couple of pre-Worboys signs in Aldbourne, I also found one in Lambourn so went there first intending to add more map squares, and found a pole with no sign so only added the squares. Not having a proper map for Wiltshire I added more squares as I had no knowledge or signs to Aldbourne so just went in that general direction to get more squares regardless, before finally making it there after going in a few circles. At no point was there a single sign to Aldbourne until I was almost there, Luckily the important signs were still there, and continued the mission for squares on the return as planned.

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
