Roundway Devizes Andrew Perrott

A truly special place, protected for you

From remote, rolling downland to picture postcard villages the North Wessex Downs are truly special. Undoubtedly among Britain’s most beautiful landscapes, they are somewhere to be treasured, protected and enjoyed. Straddling four counties and often unheralded, this is an area united by a single factor – chalk.

    I designed these for an @ARKennet project funded by @NorthWessexAONB and built them with community & school volunteers.
    The tour was part of a workshop I taught this weekend for @RainGardenUK 💙💚

    As the summer sun turns the crops to gold and brown, I thought I'd share this oil of mine which was a commission looking out over the hill fort of Blewburton from the parish of Upton in South Oxfordshire. The blue hills of the Chilterns form the backdrop. @NorthWessexAONB
