Good Morning Swindon

So here I am again, in the picturesque town of Swindon (Wilts) for the three-day festival of fun and frivolity that is the Astronomy Grants Panel. I probably won’t get much time to blog, so I thought I’d post a photograph of the idyllic view from my hotel window, in case any of you think I’m here enjoying myself…

  1. Haven’t you done this before?

  2. Bryn Jones Says:

    The only thing that could improve the view would be dense fog.

  3. As a resident of Swindon (Wiltshire), I think you do us a slight slur! Ok, the town centre is a concrete nightmare, but you’ll find some pleasant places to eat in Old Town, and some interesting technological history in the Steam museum. (Not to mention a couple of miles away, the Science Museum’s outstanding library, and loads of beautiful surrounding countryside/neolithic remains.)

    It’s easy to knock, but not entirely fair.

      … and the Magic Roundabout is well worth a hundred-mile diversion to be enjoyed and admired (and the really sad thing is that I’m not being completely facetious….)
