Bourton on the Water well worth a visit, not just a pretty Cotswold village doing cream teas, you have Birdland, the model village and the Bourton Motor Museum, the home of Brum.

The end of September is a great time to visit Bourton on the Water, unlike summer it will not be full of tourists for starters (do not visit on summer holiday weekends!!!), as by then the leaves on the trees will be turning and give a perfect backdrop to the small bridges over the river. Only 16 miles from Cirencester so worth a quick visit, especially if coming from the north.

If "the other half" wants to visit the area there is also Cheltenham, about 30 minutes, and Bath and Stratford on Avon both about an hours drive.

Seem to remember that when I was a kid they had a model railway shop/museum there also??
And not forgetting Bibury, and a spot of fishing at South Cerney.
Imagine there is no heaven, only sky above us.

Yes the large model railway is still there, with the shop selling thousands of models, went around it last year and a lovely set up especially when it goes to "night time" and main lights are dimmed and the models all light up - another attraction well worth a visit.

Bibury is worth visiting and you have the famous Arlington Row of cottages which were built in 1380 as a monastic wool store. This was converted into a row of cottages for weavers in the seventeenth century.
Also the fish farm, where trout are bred and sold to fisheries around the country. You can buy fish food there to feed them ... so you pay the fish farm for the food then you feed their fish with it - a clever business set up (but the kids love it).

Still some good tench fishing at South Cerney.

You are also on the door step for the Cotswold Water Park.

OK folks you get the idea, there is a lot to do in the area ::g ::g

Think its time I filled in my CV and sent it of to the local tourist board =))

Loving the tourist information services being provided here and am itching to join in, but I suppose I’d best behave =))

So, to keep us vaguely on topic, could anyone share how these wonderful tips have got them to book this weekend dig? We need to measure the success please.

Come on we’re going to have an MDF meet up here, and (apparently) a ‘best home made badge with your MDF name on’ competition. What more do you want? B-)

Unfortunately I cant get to the dig, as I am out with the welsh guys (same area) the week before, but if I did get out, I wont be wearing a name badge ... no need really, as you'll instantly recognise me as the loudest person there... ohh and the one eye is also a bit of a give away!

Hi Bob,

Yes, aiming to. I've booked the weekend ticket, but as I've not had the tent out for a couple of years, I might feel too old for it come September, in which case I can always drive home each night.
