17 Sep 2018 | Wiltshire, Gloucestershire & North Somerset Group

No hills & spectacular rolling landscape this time but some fine Georgian & Victorian architecture about to take centre stage one again, competing with some impressive street art. Finally finding ourselves at high Kingsdown we stopped at the Highbury Vaults for some great food & a beer
