At one of the hoar stones in the cotswolds some toffs pointed there guns at us and told us we couldn't visit the stone, we told them to fuck off and carried on anyway, as i was walking i didn't know if they were going to shoot us, when we went back past them we told them to fuck off again, but his dad was freaking out on him for threatening us with the guns, my misses then tried running him over and we were gone, a visit that sticks in the mind, they won't stop me from getting where i need to go, as in if that didn't stop us, nothing would!


You were probably quite near, or maybe even on, Gatcombe Park (I think its royal). Was in the area a couple of years back to visit the Tinglestone Long Barrow. I think that really was a tricky trespass - we got away with it because preparations were taking place for some horsey event being held the next day. We slipped in feeling furtive and mingled with the contractors who were busy erecting marquees.


I saw princess anne when i visited the tinglestone, and i got a tingle from touching it, even though i had forgot what the place was called.
