Things to do in Wiltshire

Salisbury Cathedral

Salisbury Cathedral, which is around thirty miles South-east of Cleeve House, is considered to be one of the finest leading examples of early English architecture and has the tallest church spire in all of the UK. It houses the world’s oldest working clock as well as the best surviving of four copies of the Magna Carta. Officially named the ‘Cathedral of Saint Mary’ its construction first began in 1220 and is still in use today. Regular tours are available to view this historic building.

Avebury Stones

Avebury is one of the sites listed as part of the ‘Stonehenge, Avebury and Associated Sites UNESCO World Heritage Site’ and is located less than fourteen miles North-east of Cleeve House. The Avebury monument stands slightly above the local landscape atop a low chalk ridge that is 160 m, or 520 ft, above sea level and is said to be the oldest known stone ring anywhere in the world. Its great outer circle is one of the largest stone circles in Europe.

Kennet and Avon canal

The Kennet and Avon Canal, with more than one hundred locks over eighty-seven miles, is the result of an idea first raised in Elizabethan times between 1558 – 1603. The Kennet and Avon Canal Trust’s Devizes branch office is less than five miles East of Cleeve House and is a great place to start enjoing the locks whether by foot, by bicycle or by boat. First opened in 1723, the Canal fell into serious neglect but was restored by volunteers and then re-opened by the Queen in 1990.
