Travels Through Olde England

One great thing about travelling through England is feeling that you are surrounded by so much history. I spent part of the weekend in Salisbury, home to the gorgeous Salisbury Cathedral, completed in 1258. The photograph below was taken from where I spent Sunday night - the Old Mill Pub in Harnham, originally a paper mill built in 1135.

I drove through the New Forest, created by William the Conqueror in 1079 as a personal hunting ground. Today it is home to herds of wild ponies, including this one, who stopped our car while acting as a toll booth. A sugar cube was all that was required.
