The historic market towns of Marlborough and Devizes are approximately 8 and 10 miles respectively distant and the cathedral city of Salisbury is approximately 22 miles to the south with Junction 15/16 offering access to the M4 motorway. The Kennet and Avon canal runs close to the village and there is excellent walking and riding country with the Downs nearby.
