Visit Pewsey and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Pewsey, Wiltshire. Between Salisbury Plain and the barren Marlborough Downs lies the rich fertile Vale of Pewsey, dividing the North of Wiltshire from the South.
A white horse is cut in chalk near Pewsey, an attractive agricultural town, where some shops are still thatched and the statue of Alfred the Great stands gazing over the River Avon. The 12th to 15thcentury church is chiefly interesting because the exterior of the south aisle rests on sarsen, similar to the huge blocks of stone used for Stonehenge. Inside are carvings by the onetime vicar, Canon Bouverie, and mahogany altar rails taken from a ship captured by Nelson off Cape St Vincent in 1797.
Pewsey is surrounded by pretty villages. Amongst them, Manningford Bruce, 2 miles away has charming cottages and a memorial in the church to Mary Nicholas who helped Charles II escape after the Battle of Worcester. Near Woodborough, 3 miles away, are the remains of prehistoric cultivation terraces.
