Statement

"We moved to Wiltshire in 1996 from a one bedroomed flat in West Sussex with two small children and another one on the way.

I pictured growing vegetables in the garden with a view of Salisbury spire in the distance and that's just how it was.

Thirteen years later and both the garden and me are now hopelessly overgrown and the youngest is nearly a teenager but Salisbury has stayed the same.

I know it as a bustling medievel market town surrounded by beautiful countryside, close to Stonehenge, and criss-crossed with rivers, but much of the rest of Wiltshire has managed to escape me and I'm really looking forward to venturing out and exploring more of the county for this project."
