Ancient strongholds are scattered over the county. Belonging to the middle group of cathedrals in size, this one is chiefly celebrated for its beautiful tower and cloisters, both of the Perpendicular period. Our car seemed to catch the spirit of delight that pervaded everything and sprang away airily and noiselessly over the fine highway. Deane House, the fine Tudor residence of the Earls of Cardigan, is a few miles to the northwest.

We are again on the road at the earliest opportunity, following the splendid highway to Huntingdon. Clearly they are glad to see Americans here; visitors are not the tolerated intruders that they are in so many historic places. The Radnor moors on the north bank, too, have already fallen back, and the river has broken out into England and the plains of Herefordshire—if so diversified a country may be called by comparison a plain—and to a quiet life, unvexed by mountain spurs and unchafed by resisting rocks. The walls in many places lean far from the vertical and are intersected by cracks and rents.

There are many signs of the Roman rule. By the 17th century the road from London to Bristol divided at Chippenham and ran through Bradford on its way to Bath and Wells. It is built of sandstone, weatherworn to a soft, yellowish brown, and once rich in mouldings and carvings which are now barely discernible. The purchase of a mini bus was a major factor, enabling the boxers to travel countrywide to compete. Carpets are woven at Wilton, haircloth and coco-nut fibre at Melksham, silk at Malmesbury, Mere and Warminster.

Company Director, Aidan Forests for the community Bristol/Avon book has been involved with Synwell since starting as an 11yr old Junior and later, as a senior boxer. The delightfully inconsequent outcropping wooded heights and ranges of Herefordshire press more closely on the river, particularly on its eastern banks, and amid the stately purlieus of Holm Lacy.

Another cause for the grief of the townsmen was the complaint of owners of high-bred horses that the motors jarred upon the nerves of the spirited animals to their great detriment, and naturally enough the citizens sympathized with their patron saint, the horse, against his petrol-driven rival.

The Villa Regea king's country house of the Saxon kings is first mentioned inand in the Danes attacked the Saxons here. The medieval town remained in the loop of the river around the church and market place with further developments in this area and a small area on the northern bank of the river immediately across the bridge.

From Saxon times the area was a royal forest and Forests for the community Bristol/Avon book king's country house, or hunting lodge, was maintained here. The Radnor moors on the north bank, too, have already fallen back, and the river has broken out into England and the plains of Herefordshire—if so diversified a country may be called by comparison a plain—and to a quiet life, unvexed by mountain spurs and unchafed by resisting rocks.

But Bristol is historically a county in its own right, as well as a city - and has been since It was all the fault of his landlady, who became displeased with him somehow and gave him notice.

In the succeeding centuries sheep-farming was vigorously pursued, and the Cistercian monasteries of Kingswood and Stanlegh exported wool to the Florentine and Flemish markets in the 13th and 14th centuries.

Like several other Wiltshire towns Chippenham tended to stagnate between the 16th and 18th centuries and there was little expansion of the town. London itself is so vast, and so crowded are its environs with places that may well engage the attention of the tourist, that it would be hard to guess how much time one might devote with pleasure and profit to the teeming circle within twenty-five miles of Charing Cross.

Outliers of Reading Beds and London Clay occur about Great Bedwin; the sarsen stones previously referred to represent the last remnants of a mantle of Tertiary rocks which formerly covered the district.

Its date is uncertain; but the work has been proved, wherever excavated, to be Roman or Romano-British. A theory has also been advanced that the bridge was fortified, as otherwise it would be the weak link in the northern defences.

Two other mills were used for the production of silk and these were next to the Neeld Hall and in Wood Lane. There is no finer road in England than that leading from Cambridge to Newmarket. One of the most charming features of the county is its fertile and well-wooded valleys.The brook arises from the Great Oolite limestone passing through cornbrash and Oxford clay at its lower limits.

The brook is a relatively small tributary to the Bristol Avon but has the expanding town of Corsham at its headwaters. The Byde Mill Brook has not been surveyed in the past for fish.
