Look ! Bass clickbait ! There IS some Bass coming up in National Bass Week, but it wasn’t on in the Angel in Westbury, my next stop on the Wilts Wipe-out. I haven’t been too kind on Westbury (Latin Motto – “At least we’re not all la-di-da like Frome“), as you can see from my… Continue reading WESTBURY’S UNREADABLE WI-FI PASSWORD
The day after returning to Sheffield from London we had to head straight back down south for a family emergency (don’t worry, the Doom Bar cellar hasn’t been raided). I negotiated a stop in Oxon (3 pubs needed) on the way, having seen the public transport options for Burford were a challenge; Mrs RM parked… Continue reading BURFORD BIFFED. IN 20 SECONDS.

I visit North West Hampshire quite a bit as it’s on my way to the End of the Road music festival, has good walks in Watership Down territory and is amply supplied with cheapo Travelodges and Premier Inns. Just north of Andover are some of the prettiest villages in the South, including the thatch and stream… Continue reading ANDOVER -REFUGE FROM THE BOLLY VALLEY
