  This delightful town lies on the trout-filled River Test close to the Danebury Iron Age hill fort, one of the best-studied in Britain.

The prehistoric structure was built around 500BC as a significant Celtic town but may have been abandoned soon after the arrival of Roman invaders.

Stockbridge Down, owned by the National Trust, is a haven for chalk-loving flowers and insects.

A short distance from the town is Marsh Court, one of the few surviving English properties built from chalk.
