A local daily bimble

Here’s a view of the Bourne Valley just outside Salisbury. I get this view every morning if the weather and time of year allow, this is early o’clock on a May morning.

I have worked from home for around 20 years and have 3 dogs so a good 2-3 mile walk sets me up for the day. Living on a modern estate on the edge of Old Sarum means some of this walk is through the boring streets of suburbia but I get to walk past ancient earthworks, the historic Old Sarum airfield and see the listed wartime hangers and some of the larger aircraft from the Boscombe Down Collection. For much of the year we see the happy souls gathering to throw themselves out of a perfectly good aircraft at Go Skydive.


I also see lots of wildlife; a huge rookery, hares boxing, pheasants, shaded woodland and what will be a “proper” chalk downland Meadow once the builders of a neighbouring development finish clearing it up.
