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:
But the answer to how to live is to stop thinking about it. And just to live. But you're doing that anyway. However you intellectualise it, you still just live. - Damien Hirst
