Day 12 and still going strong! Simone was back in England today as she continued to wind her way through each county: four stops today, meaning four more interesting landmarks to check off the list.
The first was Donnington Castle in Berkshire. After an early start, Simone was greeted by the local Freemasons Tim and Brian. After a photo in front of the ruins of the old medieval castle with a 1937 Alvis Speed 25 Drophead Coupe, it was time to move on to the next stop of the day.
Wiltshire is full of history, including Stonehenge and the famous White Horses. Simone’s journey through the county took her to one of the oldest known settlements in the UK - Bratton Camp. The Iron Age fort here is over 2000 years old, but the famous White Horse on the side of the hill is more recent, dating back to the 1600s. Simone was met at this historic location by representatives from the local Freemasons and Widows Sons.
To end a busy morning, Simone squeezed in one more stop before lunch, St Mary Redcliffe Church in Bristol. She was met here by Bristol Freemasons and her next lift, a classic MK2 SWB Land Rover ragtop.
After Bristol, she was taken to the Westcountry, for something just a little bit different! In Somerset, Simone swopped one Landrover at Xtreme Off Road in Shepton Mallet, for an off-road race course. Simone posed for a photo shoot with one of the competition Land Rovers which regularly face the challenging Somerset terrain – the final stop of the day.
