Dauntsey Village

Dauntsey Village is located in North Wiltshire some 6 miles from the ancient town of Malmesbury and a similar distance from Wootton Bassett. The major town of Swindon is 12 miles away.  The M4 motorway allows swift access to the South, East and West and London Healthrow, Bristol, Birmingham and Cardiff airports are less then 90 minutes away by road.

The river Avon flows through one part of the Village and in earlier times the Village had links by canal and railway to the surrounding district.  

The majority of inhabitants have lived in the community for a long time, but few work in the Village and local farms. Many residents commute to work outside the Village and local area, and a significant number work from their homes.”

Walks in Dauntsey Parish

This three mile walk to the Peterborough Arms and back takes you through open countryside between Sodom Lane and Dauntsey Lock. 

The walk should reward you with a pub break at the Peterborough Arms half-way round – providing you with a convenient watering hole before you return. 

You’ll be walking through open fields and experiencing a range of views across to Bradenstoke from a perspective that you wouldn’t normally see from the road.

The terrain is easy – but be prepared to negotiate a few awkward styles.  The land can get wet – so bring along some boots.
