The August Bank Holiday in the UK always seems to me to be the last day of summer (even if we might get an Indian Summer) – the next Bank Holiday will be in December. So after a certain amount of hard work over the weekend (more about that tomorrow) we went on a little excursion out into Hampshire.
Although I have lived in the area for many years now I have never gone Hinton Ampner so suggested it as our destination. We set off late morning when it was still dull and slightly drizzly, by the time we got there there was plenty of blue in the sky and the sun was making a welcome appearance. We parked and locked our transport (which deserves a post all of its own) and headed of to snaffle sandwiches and tea.
