BASING House: Having mentioned Alan Turton’s Siege Walk (01256 321193) on October 6 in my last column, I visited the site on Saturday to see the archaeological dig.
Investigating the rich history relating to what was the largest private house in Tudor England, is a fascinating way to spend an afternoon so I’ve now bought a season ticket and hope to enjoy many more events.
