I could have chosen to stop at a number of National Trust properties on my way home but I stopped off at NT HQ Heelis in Swindon.
I only did this as according to the excellent National Trust Scone blog via Twitter we have yet to a scone from Heelis (it has a cafe).
Now I have to say that I knew roughly where I was headed but had expected to see one of the acorn signs and didn't..... HELP!
So I stopped the car.... I then got out this smart phone thingy, turned on 4g and location services, opened the NT APP and then went to google maps from the APP and found out where I was and where I should be.
Essentially Heelis is an office with a shop and a cafe......
You would have thought with a celeb like Mr Quacks coming there would have been banners and the chief exec waiting.... but no LOL
But it was the scone we were after.....
Not perfect but Mr Quacks approved!
