Great trip. I'd come all the way from NZ and was not disappointed! Love to be able to wander around the yard and sheds and not have it dumbed down like other places. Very friendly people and great photos! I went on a non running day, so kids were scarce, good for us seasoned anoraks. Kind regards to Didcot.
