Pewsey is the main village and service centre in the Pewsey Vale.  The River Avon runs through the middle of the village, just by King Alfred’s statue in Market Place, and just north of the village is Pewsey Wharf on the Kennet & Avon Canal.

Pewsey has a mainline railway station linking  you to London (Paddington Station) to the east and to towns in Devon and Cornwall to the west.

There are plenty of independent and specialist shops in the village as well as a number of traditional village pubs.  Make sure you visit Marshall’s Bakery in North Street to sample the local delicacy of the lardy cake – it’s very filling!

Pewsey is home to one of the Wiltshire White Horses, as well as Jones’s Mill Nature Reserve.  Visit the Pewsey Heritage Centre for a fine display of rural history and McNeill Gallery of Contemporary Art for special exhibitions and a fabulous collection of contemporary art throughout the year.

If you are visiting in September, then don’t miss the Pewsey Carnival which is held annually.  There are lots of events in the run up to the carnival, all of which are a lot of fun to watch or participate in.

Visit the Pewsey village website for more information.
