Wiltshire is steeped in history right through the ages. Stonehenge, the prehistoric stone circle, dating from about 3000BC. The huge White Horses carved in the chalk hillsides. Salisbury Cathedral, built in the 13th Century, with its 404ft spire, which is the tallest in England. Historic houses and gardens such as Stourhead, Lacock Abbey and Longleat, to name a few. The administrative centre is Trowbridge. Wiltshire is also, of course, well known for its carpets.
