Bus Challenge No 165!

Corsham, Wiltshire

“The Flemish Weaver is a 17th century Ale House, whose name is derived from the Flemish weavers that fled from religious persecution and enhanced the woollen industry in the town. This charming building is situated in the oldest part of Corsham Town, within a stone’s throw from Corsham Court.”

Knowing that today was going to be a beautiful, but chilly, blue sky day, I was determined to get out and enjoy the sunshine, and so planned an easy outing, with a minimal amount of walking.

After meeting up with my BC friend in Bath, we took a second bus for a scenic journey through the Wiltshire countryside to Corsham, and headed straight to The Flemish Weaver for a drink. If this scene looks familiar, it’s because Corsham is one of the filming locations for Poldark, The Flemish Weaver regularly features in the programme (in fact they’re filming again next Monday). Inside the pub, Poldark certainly made his presence felt! (See extra) Before catching the bus back, there was just enough time to pop to the Post Office, stock up on Ibuprofen, and buy a bag of jammy doughnuts for the bus journey home!
