    Hi everyone, we wont be leaving until late on friday. Are quite concerned over the severe weather forecast.

    Not looking forward to the possibility of sitting on the motorways until midnight on Friday due to conditions and accidents.

    If any of you are arriving on Friday before 3pm please can I trouble you to update on the conditions.

    We are keeping an eye on the forecast and not sure if we want to drive back on sunday in 20-25mph winds with similar forecast for the monday



    Many thanks

    Gail, we're on the A4 between Cherhill and Beckhampton, a sleepyspot overlooking the gallops, its dry and mild, Sunday seems to be the day we're in for it.

    It stopped raining at around 10. It's been lovely ever since, sunny and warm. Looking forward to the cheese and wine this evening:thumb:
