The Pewsey Vale has a wealth of Churches, some used, some redundant, but all in idyllic settings in the most picturesque villages you will find.

All of the churches are listed which means that the upkeep of them is extremely high.  If you are able to make any donations during your visit, they will be most welcome.  You may also be interested in donating to the Wiltshire Historic Churches Trust.
