Old Sarum Castle – Unforseen family circumstances so I had to go solo

By the time the UK was starting to ease and open up after a year long of Covid lockdowns and closures, my family and I were eager to get out camping and exploring again. We were especially excited to visit the Old Sarum Castle.

So, in April 2021, we were quick to book 3 getaways for the summer holidays in July & August… Norfolk, Oxford and Wiltshire.

The Norfolk camping adventure was fun, but a big challenge. Oxford was a non-starter! And Salisbury in Wiltshire… well, this is the story of that trip.
