Compton Bassett, Wiltshire
Review of Compton Bassett by Lady Jane Brid on February 15th, 2009
I used to think this lovely little village was a nice place to visit and relax in. However, due to the new unruly, shall we say, newcomers to this once civilised country hamlet, I shall not be passing through again, as I feel they have lowered the tone rather a lot.
Her virtue was that she said what she thought, her vice that what she thought didn't amount to much. - Peter Ustinov
