Aldbourne to Ramsbury over the tops and back again

We have experienced some beautiful blue skies and glorious sunshine this weekend, the perfect time to walk over the tops on old tracks from Aldbourne to Ramsbury, where coincidentally there used to be a pottery Mike Yates talked about on Friday at a talk at Swindon's Museum and Art Gallery.
He has also written an article about it in the Friends Journal winter issue 2011.
Here are four of the Ramsbury Pottery pots he owns:
 and a close up of the one with light reflecting off it:
On the way back from Ramsbury, we walked back along Love's Lane and came across Love's Lane Studio, thinking it was an Open Studios event, we went to have a look, but it's a recording studio:
The light on the hills as we walked down towards Aldbourne was glorious:

And a few cow parsley stalks:
And then to the green past the church:
 and for a late lunch at the Blue Boar:
 The main courses were great, but Jan's strawberry pavlova was an excellent choice, so good I took a photograph of it:

Give it a try, it's a great pub.
