Today dawned bright and sunny so we decided to drive to Wilton to see the windmill and go for a walk along the Kennet and Avon Canal. However when we arrived the sun had gone in and it was rather grey, not that it stopped us enjoying our day.
The windmill only opens its doors on Bank Holiday weekends when they put the windmill to work but you are allowed to walk right up to it at other times. I would love to go back again when it is working, it must be quite dramatic to see the sails turn especially if it is as blustery as it was today.
We then drove a short distance to Crofton where we walked on the Kennet and Avon Canal towpath up as far as Little Bedwyn and back again - a distance of almost four miles. I am going for my Silver body magic award at Slimming World this week so it is good for me to rack up the miles.
