The third in a series of day cycles around the Cotswolds/Wiltshire over the bank holiday weekend.  Make a weekend of it or come for the day. Day 1 here, Day 2 here.

Today's cycle is a fairly relaxing 50km bimble through Wiltshire/Cotswolds to the quintessential Lacock Abbey country house and village.  It's the kind of place that features on the front of a posh tin of biscuits (the chocolate or shortbread variety).  Dig in the bottom of your wallet and bring along your National Trust membership card.

The cycle is along mostly quiet country lanes in a loop, starting in Sherston and the halfway point is Lacock.  Lunch will probably be at Lacock or a country pub on route.  If not a National Trust member, entry to the house is £14.50 (annual membership is £72).

According to Wikipedia "The village has been used as a film and television location, notably for the 1995 BBC production of Pride and Prejudice and the 2007 BBC production of Cranford. It also made brief appearances in the Harry Potter films Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, and in the spin-off film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald."

Why are we starting in Sherston? The reason is because it's convenient for your intrepid leaders.

If you are making a weekend of it, some possible accommodation is listed below:
