Old Sarum, Salisbury: 31 December 2016

The iron age hill fort of Old Sarum is situated on the outskirts of the town of Salisbury, Wiltshire above the campsite where we chose to spend the new year's eve of 2016 heading into 2017. Temperatures were not going to head below zero and the weather was going to be dry (if dull) so we decided to do something a little different for the new year - these were the final photos I took in 2016.
