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.
