29/8/90

Spent some time in Warminster then went for a drive with Ann in the countryside. We ate a picnic lunch at Alfred’s Tower, 160 foot high tower built by Queen Victoria on the spot where Alfred the Great, the first real king of the English, raised his standard against the invading Danes in 878. From the top of the open-topped, triangular tower there was a magnificent view out over the rolling green counties of Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire.

Later that night we went for drinks with Ann to the home of the snooty Duchess Diana Newcastle.
