Basingstoke Tips

Remains of Basing House which was once the country's largest private house, belonged to William Paulet, Marquess of Winchester. A servant of great wealth of Tudor kings, his palace extended to 10 acres, the earthwork banks of the castle still dominating the ruins. Take a riverside walk along the banks of the River Lodden to visit the Tudor Great Barn, another feature of Basing House. - Carol

Brit Quote:
The dictum that truth always triumphs over persecution is one of the pleasant falsehoods which men repeat after one another till they pass into commonplaces, but which all experience refutes. - John Stuart Mill
