Annual Forum

The North Wessex  Downs Annual Forum is on14 October 2015 at the Bouverie Hall in Pewsey. This is always a lively and interesting event and is open to all. This year the theme is Heritage. Go to events page for full details.


The North Wessex Downs AONB is home to well-known landmarks such as Avebury, Silbury Hill, and the white horse at Uffington but there are plenty more sites that are just as fascinating.  The area contains more than 520 scheduled monuments, one of the densest concentrations in the country.

We have secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to spread the word about the rich history of the landscape that we live in.  Work has already been done to document what exists and this new funding will enable this information to be shared more widely. 

This year's Forum will include a  series of workshops and there  will be a chance to find out more about the Historic Landscape Character in your local area and hear more from experts in heritage. To book a place email info@northwessexdowns.org.uk or call the office on 01488 685440
