“..I now cast my arm to the North where the dark and wooded undulations of the Vale of Wardour offer a broad interruption to the ubiquitous chalk ridges and plains of South Wiltshire. With the uniform chalk layer disturbed and removed by some distant upheaval it is a place of exposed rock, clay and water seepages where the River Nadder collects its sandy and snaking character before conforming to the rules of the River Avon at Salisbury Cathedral.”
