Pewsey Town Information

Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Wiltshire...

Overlooked by one of Wiltshire’s many hillside white horses, this is the largest village in Wiltshire and lies in the unspoiled Vale of Pewsey on the banks of the River Avon.

It once belonged to Alfred the Great whose splendid statue reminds visitors of its former importance. Surrounded by chalk downland, it boasts a number of thatched buildings.

A local heritage centre housed in a 19th century foundry contains a collection of historic machine tools.
