    I'll give you info on a good road ride.

    Ride down to Dorset stop at Milton Abbas ( tea & cakes), clouds hill Lawrence of Arabia cottage ( it's a national trust property so bring your card if you have one) , the site where he crashed, the graveyard where he's buried and lunch stop, lovelycafe/tea rooms in Morton Corfe castle and to a ferry crossing on the swanage/poole ferry, ice cream and sticky buns and back to the hog. .
    All your BMW servicing needs at the .gsshop.biz, including 1200 models

    That was the only one that i found,too Bryn. Looking at the Map, How about the 3 Chalk Horses in the Vale of Pewsey then Stonehenge ?
    A342 > Luggershall > Horses > Devizes
    A360 > Stonhenge
    A345 up the edge of the Plain to the
    A342 and Back

    Unless someone Local knows of something better ??

    Both suggestions look good, but spookily just been on the phone about the subject... Poole for an Ice Cream was suggested ...

    Incorporating a bit of history sounds a great idea

    I'd probably be up for that as well... Depends how I drunk I get and who I promise that I'll go on the Fords' run.
