Geo-Trips :: Surrey to Somerset

Little Weston

A drive from Bagshot, Sat, 20 Oct 2018 by David Howard

Another pre-Worboys sign collection turned up online, six directions on one junction so well worth the visit. The A303 is a very easy road, rarely busy and accessed via the M3 from Surrey. I also visited Fleet Services for the first time which had just been rebuilt. I then covered as much of the area furthest out without actually getting lost.

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. ( )
