We enjoyed the best weather of the year thanks to walk leaders Guy and Sarah (or their Maker) with lovely mud-free grassy downs. People journeyed from Exmouth and Cheltenham, Salisbury and even Taunton. 26 Bassets + a varied assortment of hangers-on – otherwise known as spaniels, terriers of unknown origin and what looked suspiciously like a Basset/Beagle cross. Hamilton was in fine voice as usual, but otherwise with no mud, no pheasants or rabbits and no woods to sniff, it was a relatively incident free five miler.

The White Horse, cut in 1780, is the work of a Dr Christopher Alsop of Calne, sometimes referred to as "the mad doctor". He dictated the shape through a megaphone while . . . on his horse.
