[14 August 1958]

[Newbury]

Joy took us for a glorious trip round Dorset, Stonehenge remade en route - & Yarnbury. Then Shaftesbury & this glorious giant1 on his sunny hill, & over wild downs.  We ended up in a remote thatched pub in the quietest village I’ve ever met. Then down to the sea on the Chesil bank yesterday – a visit to Sylvia Townsend Warner & home in the rain via Sarum.  Here till Monday.  Thank you for HWN2 & the cutting.  All well & lots of love to you both from us both.
