Game 2 continued

In the afternoon the WAGS went on an excursion in the car exploring the local area.
Our first stop was at Avebury to look at the stone age standing stones and ditches that surround the village. I had visited the site four years ago and found it just as impressive as on the first visit.
We then set off to visit the village of Lacock and on the way stopped to view the Cherhill chalk horse carved into the side of the hill.
The history of the horse is provided on a nearby notice-board. The horse was first carved into the hillside in 1780.
Lacock is a village that has been used in a number of films and television series including Pride and Prejudice, Cranford and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Many of the buildings are medieval structures and it is a fascinating area to explore.

We arrived back at Goatacre to see the end of the game and then attended the dinner arranged for members of the two teams. Another successful and enjoyable day.
