There is a shop in Seend, the nearest village so, being in need of bread, we wended our way up the hill.
Apart from the village street now being the A361 it was a pleasant enough place.
Next, an apology for getting the pub name wrong the other day, it is of course The Three Magpies. Thanks to n.b. Chance for pointing it out, I am suitably humbled. I have now corrected the aforesaid post. I blame the several pints of Wadworth's Henry's I.P.A. I had absentmindedly consumed.
Have you seen the latest on red diesel? The morons in Brussels are poking their noses in again and demanding that we will no longer be entitled to use it at all, unless we have separate tanks for white and red. Apart from damage to our own wallets it will kill the hire boat firms who, love 'em or hate 'em, are major financial contributors to C&RT. Many boatyards will not be able to afford the swop and all in all it will be a total disaster for the system. Will our politicians have the will to stand up to them? I doubt it.
