  A former stagecoach town, Whitchurch lies on the banks of the River Test close to Watership Down, the landscape that inspired Richard Adams to pen his bestseller of the same name.

In previous centuries the area’s prosperity came from the manufacture of silk. An old mill still produces silk and is open to the public.
