    During a break from DIY on Friday, I took this dodgy mobile shot through the window....

    I didn't see a single freight go by all day, just HSTs. If I'd lived here 40 years ago, I would have seen plenty of Westerns! :thumbs:

    So not Marlborough then.

    Twenty questions to workout where Dan lives... is your house depicted in Barry Freeman's painting "Sharing the moment"? (or would have been if built when the photo, from which the painting was done, was taken). For those who do not have a Freeman anorak in Mickoo's cupboard, this painting shows:-
    * GWR line from Newbury to Pewsey;
    * Saint and Castle on a westbound passenger service;
    * Kennet & Avon canal lock with barge;
    * village behind train.

    One of my favourite Freeman prints.

    regards, Graham

    Hi Dan,

    For some reason unknown in my addled brain I thought you lived near Westbury, or is that your place of work.

    Martyn.

    Must be near Savernake then? If you'd lived there 60 years ago you'd have seen lots of Kings, Castles and Halls – and not a lot else to be honest...

    I think that you are close... although maybe two or three miles from the Forest.

    Maybe Dan does not want us to know how close he is to the Pub ;) .

    Westbury is indeed where I'm based, but I live about 30 - 36 miles away, depending which roads I take and is one of the reasons we want to move. It's costing a fortune in diesel, money better spent at model railway exhbitions. :))

    Wagonman is quite correct in that I'm very near to Savernake forest and very picturesque it is too. I'd also quite happily have lived here 60 years ago and would certainly not have tired of a constant procession of Swindon's finest locos chugging past all day! :thumbs:

    Graham - No, not Marlborough, but how many people have heard of Crofton?

    I think I may have seen the painting to which you refer - does it look something like this?....

    IMAG1386-1.jpg

    IMAG1394-1.jpg
    If so, that's Little Bedwyn, about 2 miles east of Crofton. It looks a bit different and less inviting covered in snow mind! :)
