Last Saturday I popped over to the Bowood Game and Country Fair. I was led past Bowood House to an enormous temporary car park in a field and then had a ten-minute walk to the entrance to a huge temporary enclosure where one bought tickets. There was a sign requesting that one had the "correct change" for the admission price of £11 and a tent in which a man sat at a table with a money box and a ledger.
I realised that I had insufficient cash to get in and noticed that there was no advanced technology such as a till or any kind of electricity to power a debit/credit machine and asked if I could pay by cheque. The answer was no, cash only, and so I trudged back to the car and followed the signs to the exit - miles and miles of track that led me to Mile Elm, on the other side of the estate and on a completely different side of Calne to that which I had come in from. By the time I had obtained cash it wasn't worth going back.
On the way out, I stopped at a Palladian bridge at the south end of Bowood Lake and took a few pictures. There were no birds or ducks about, only a sole motionless fisherman. I don't know if he caught any fish, but at least he had a sunny afternoon and a pleasant view.
