Cranborne Chase AONB

Wiltshire’s ‘Outstanding’ places

You might not be aware but there are three designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Wiltshire. These will be celebrated as part of a national ‘Outstanding’ Week taking place from 16-24 September so we thought we’d share with you twelve reasons why you should make a visit to one or more of our AONBs (The Cotswolds, North Wessex Downs and Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs).

Form and Fascination at The Courts

Form and Fascination at The Courts, Holt

The outdoor sculpture exhibition features the works of artists, Fiona Campbell, and Ian Turnock, in the beautiful setting of the gardens of The Courts. The exhibition runs until 15 October by which time the changing autumn colours will add an extra element to this exhibition.
