Savernake Forest.

Is just outside of Marlborough about 10 miles south of Swindon,Marlborough is a nice little town with historic teaching links(Marlborough School)and a fine golf course:biggrin:
This old relic i drive past many a time and is somewhat taken for granted now(pic below)...believed to be over a thousand years old it has a metal support and the Royal hunt was known to be a big user of this forest when most of the trees would have been oak like this beauty.
The road south will see you reach Burbage and its lovely canal and onto Tidworth and Salisbury although Savernake Forest itself ends around ware it meets the canal in Burbage.
I didn't take this pic as it is a dangerous road to stop on....but lets hope this blast from the past is standing for many years to come....the tree that is not me:biggrin:
