2011 in pictures! 

Our favourite snap-shots and videos from the year gone by
Well, what a year 2011 has been.
An eventful twelve months that has seen the sad closure of RAF Lyneham and the last repatriations through Wootton Bassett (now 'Royal', of course), the 'mad' David Walliams jumping in the Thames at Lechlade on his way to raising 1 million pound for Sport Relief and the bad - the two lorry drivers who didn't expect to find themselves wedged underneath the same railway bridge in Swindon!
So here it is, the SwindonWeb snap shot of 2011.
