Geo-Trips :: A tour around Corsham

Corsham

A drive from Chisbury, Sat, 4 Jan 2020 by David Howard

Having found a very unusual pre-Worboys car park sign in Corsham LinkExternal link firstly I was lucky enough to find it was still there (many aren't), and then used the remaining time before it got dark to cover as much of the area as possible before returning on the A4. There was no traffic either way so got there easily and with plenty of time to explore afterwards, combined with mild sunny weather.

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. ( )
