Wiltshire

A mainly agricultural county in the South of England, Wiltshire covers an area of 1,343 square miles and has a population of 555,000.

It has it's administrative headquarters at Trowbridge with the cathedral city of Salisbury, and the towns of Swindon and Wilton, famous for it's carpets, being other major centres.

Wiltshire has, in Stonehenge, probably the most famous prehistoric site in Britain. Said by many to have originally been built for long forgotten mystical ceremonies Stonehenge graces the Salisbury Plain. The Plain itself has been a training ground for the British Army since the Napoleonic Wars.

Along with this scenically beautiful area Wiltshire also offers Marlborough Downs, Savernake Forest and the rivers Kennet and the Salisbury and Bristol Avons as other physically attractive locations.
