Musing on life in the heart of rural Wiltshire. Well, erm Chippenham actually...
1. Create advertisement2. Decide to place it in Chippenham, where it's quicker to drive to Newquay than go by air3. Wait for a Blogger with a camera to spot it at the local train station4. Et voila!

surely Newquay is nearer to Chippenham than Gatwick is?Well actually no - according to my route-planner Ch-Nq is 192 miles; Ch-Gat is 117 miles but Gat-Nq is 297 miles so Ch-Nq via Gat is 414 miles.
Quite - it's very silly isn't it!
And the air advert at the local train station as well!
They should pay you a percentage; D
It's just plain daft Liz. The travel to Gatwick+flight time and the quickest train journey are about the same time, so the airline must be targetting on price rather than convenience!As for a percentage, I don't think they'd like my cynical take on it Nessa ;)
