Mystical Marvellous Wiltshire

WILTSHIRE is a large county in the south-west of England. It’s more renowned within England as being a farming county, as well as its long military history. The populace per square capita is the smallest in the country. So, dare I say it, there are lots of fields and empty spaces! Mention you’re from England to anyone abroad and everyone thinks you’re from London! Mention Wiltshire and people look at you blankly – until you say ‘Stonehenge’ and then they get it.

The Primord series is set in a town called Warminster, an old Anglo-Saxon town, today renowned for its army camps and UFO sightings. A somewhat isolated place, the right side edges onto the Salisbury Plain while the left aligns with Longleat, the old Selwood Forest and the next county of Somerset.

But Wiltshire isn’t just home to one icon. It’s home to hundreds, whether they be the stone circle at Avebury, the West Kennet long barrow or the hundreds of Iron Age hillforts that dot the surrounding countryside.
