  View of High Street, Pewsey, Wiltshire (Wilts), England   Pewsey.

Pewsey, "Pevesie" in the Domesday Book, is a large village sometimes referred to as a small town which is on both the Kennett and Avon Canal and the railway - well connected then. This view is of High Street looking east.

There is free street parking and a free reasonable sized car park just off North Street.

  View of the Downs, Wiltshire (Wilts), England   Pewsey Down.

This view is looking north-east from Walkers Hill towards Knap Hill and the high ground of Pewsey Down Nature Reserve. The small free car park by Knapp Hill can be seen (look for the row of coloured cars - better seen in the large view) and it is very handy for those wishing to explore Pewsey Down and the Wansdyke.

There are lots of wild flowers although different plants will be in flower at different times of year. There were great swathes of Buttercups and lots of Scabious, among others, when we were there in July.
