All Hallows at Conkwell
Did I say I wasn't going to post for a few days? Well I was lying. I used to live here - a few hundred yards from a prehistoric stone circle which only me and a handful of others know about, and that handful is the Bradford on Avon Amateur Archeological Association.
This is one of the original standing stones, now prone and lying there, waiting for cars like mine to be parked upon it.
Others lurk in the undergrowth,
... like this one. Nearby there is an ancient earthwork and stone conglomeration called 'Jugg's Grave'. Look it up on an OS Map.
And closer again, someone has dumped the second most expensive vacuum cleaner in the world.
I once tried to rent this cottage, also close by. The outgoing tenant advised me not to, because the place was haunted by the entire family of an axe-murderer who killed them all in it, and I later found out that this was true.
I see the current tenants are getting into the Halloween spirit quite nicely, and also quite early.
I will respond to all your lovely comments from this morning tomorrow, honest!
