@mike_smith you must have the wrong place as the only tag anywhere near Salisbury is Rockbourne Roman Villa Museum

@Hoggs The Riverside bar & Eatery by Hereford is inside a barrier controlled caravan park & they won’t let me onto the park so a photo of the caravan park entrance will have to do 👍

Plus.....Kilvert Museum no longer exists, its now a private house, so a photo of the building is all we can do :thumb:

Hopley's Cafe is a bit difficult to find. I rode past it twice before I spotted the small sign (only visible when going north) - And it was closed!
The entrance is opposite a rather large gated building called 'The Hall' which will be on your left as you go south through the village.
Parking is also not easy (for a heavy bike) - decided to park on the main road and walk back to the sign for the photo.

Currently too hot to ride far so, next tags at the weekend.

I dont get there as much as I used to it depends on my shift pattern, they carry on meeting all year. Plus when I get the chance to be out I am tend to ride further than a handful of miles down the road. If you PM Me your going I will try and get there, although if I recall you know a couple of the regulars.
Not even certain I have tagged it this year!
