Weekend away with my schoolfriends -2012

My school friends and I went away in early October to stay at Littlecote House, near Hungerford.  The hotel is part of the Warner group and very pleasant location.  

We spent the Saturday in Hungerford, pottering around the antique shops and then long the Kennet and Avon Canal. 
On Saturday night we were entertained by Todd Miller and the Joe Loss Orchestra.

On Sunday we visited Avebury Manor, quite an interesting place.
Then we walked around the Standing Stones of Avebury.
Finally we went onto Silbury Hill.


  1. My parents/family go to various dinner and dance events and when I'm in the UK I'll often go along too. Joe Loss' orchestra have played at a couple I've been too and I thought they were great. Hope you enjoyed that part of your trip away.

    1. Laura, they were really good. We chose the date because we knew it was the big band sound.
