Pigot's Directory of Wiltshire - 1822

Tars county is situated in tl1e province of Canterbury, in the diocese or Salisbury, and contains ~g
hundrecll', one city, 15 boroughs, and 10 other market-towns, On the north and west side of it lies Glou-

cestershire; its western boundary is Somer~etshire; Dors~tshire confines its southern extremity; and Hamp-

shire and Ber!ishire inclose it on the east. Its extreme length is 54 miles, and breadth ·34, and its area

measures a'bout 878,000 acres. The air of Wilt!:'hire lil\e that of othel' counties, is various, according to the

difft•rent parts of it, but on the whole it is Bg-reeable and salubrious. On the downs and higher parts, it i~

sh.up and dear; in the vallies mild, ev£>n in winter. Throughout tl1e county, in a north-east direction,

runs the chalk ridge, spreading in large high plains, called the 'Wiltshire llowns. These dm'l"ns, in the southern

part called Salisbury plain, the surface consists of a ldnd of chalky loam of various depth. There are also

some very sing-ular veins of !land, which run through this di11tcict ; the western and northern parts princi-

pally consist of a rich tract of vale land. Over the extensive wilds, ·cRlled Salisbury plain, roam immense

flocks of sheep, who with their shepherds, are the sole tenants, if the bustard, the wheatear, and a few other'

solitary birds be excepted, avoid the haunts of men. The summer stock of sheep on these plains and·

down!:', is computed to be 500,000; the wool, which in course forms a considerable artide of trade, is mo-

derate_ly fine. On the borders of Dorsetshire many cows are kept, and much butter made ; the north-wes-

tern part i~ famous for its cheese, second only to that of Cheshire. ThE' manufucturin~e part of the county

is on the Somersetsbire borders, the principal article worked is superfine broad cloth; besides which there are

mnnufacturers of Serges, and other woollen stuffs; of dowlas, bed-ticking, glovt>s, &c. The rivers o£ thitt

county are the Lower Avoa ;-the Thames or Isis; the Cole ; the Kennet; the Bourne; the Uppcu Avon;

the Willey; and the Nadder. ·

ON the westE>rn border of Wiltshire, 100 miles west of London, 7 miles south-east of Bath, and ~0

from Bristol. is a noted and popuhus manufacturing town, romantically situated on the banks of a consi~
dernble river called the Lower Avon, which nmning through the centre~ diYirles it into two parts over whicb
are two !'ltone b1·idges, one large and handsome with 9 arche~ in the centre, of the town, the othvr lower
down the river in the outskirts of it. The river flows "'·est through Bath to Bristol, and empties itself

in'to the Bristol c.lmnnel. The Kennet and Avon canal whic_b connects the two great c.'ommercial cities of

Loncon and Bristol, ar,d on whif:h considerable trade h; carried on, not only between those cities, out like'>o
wise the different towns on its whole line of navigation, forming also a junction with the eoal and otl!er
canals, is close to this town, adjoining to whieh is A handsome And commodious wharf for the benefit of

trade. Bradford is an ancient town, of some note in tht' time of ilte Saxons; deriving its present name

from Bradenford, the Saxon term for broad-ford, over which at that period, tbere was no bridge; it gites

name to its hundred and is built all of stone, is situated within a co'fe fermt>d by the surrounding hill'!1 from
the summits of which, are ddightfnl picturesque, varied ttnd extensive prospects, nnd whi,·h at the samtt
time defends it from the north 1tnd east winds, is very ht>althfully situated on a roc.'ky soil, nnd every part
verging to the river, kl"eps it salubrious. Dnring the h~ptarchyit was distinguished L-y a bloody battle fought

here hetween Kenewalchin'l, King of the West Saxona and his kinsman Cuthred; the remains of intrenc'h·

ment!l and tumuli, where the slain were deposited. being still to be seen. On digging near the spot in the

yeal' 1820, several skeletons were found in good preserl'ation, together with swords; spear-heads, arrow'-

heads and other warlike instruments, then in use, and ll ring supposed gold, with a motto in the centre Of

an nnltn.,wn character. In tlle reign of Edward L it sent in one instance two membt>rs to parliamenr, to
wit, Thomas Dering and William Wager, but wlwther it forfeited its right by neglect or wa:s disfranehised

by t.he aut~10rity of gol'ernment is uacertain; it sti1l, however, retains the appellation of " tbe borough."

The st1eets in this town, although irregular, are in genc.'ral wide and airy, and contains many Tery good

l10uses. The church is a large ancient building with a steeple and tower, containing 8 re1narkably fine toned

bells, the 'interior whand;,ome, and hns an excellent organ, with many well sculptured marble mQnuments.

particularly in the chancel, where there is a very good· altarpiece, ornau1ented with a painting of the last

supper, done by a native of this town; it has also two h11nchome windows of painterl gla11s, representing the

actions of our Saviour and his apostles; those windo\VS with an elegant ser'fice of communion-plate aml



other donations were the gifts of John l"errett, Esq. of London. a native of this place, who died in 1770.
Bl'1ldford is a vicarage, attached tcfo which are 7 other churobes, viz. \Vestwood, Limpley, Stoke, Winsley,
HoJt, South Wraxhall, Attworth an(l Broughton; the living is about SOOl. neu per annum, and is in tlte

~ift of the dean and chapter of Bristol; the Rev. F. William Blomherg, chaplahi. to his Majesty George IV.

i,s the present vkar. Near the church is a free-school for the education of boys eudowed in the year 1712;

and likewise two almsbouses, one for men founded by John Hall, Esq. the last of an ancient family, 1those
residence had been at B1·adford ever since the time of Edward I.; the other for poor old women, wlterc

formerly W&IJ a chapel, with a bell, and an allowance for a chaplain to the same, but now applied to r•ur-

PI111e! different than what it appears was the original intention of its pious founder. Here are also 5ix dis-

eentiug places of worship, one of which, the Wesleyan chapel, is a large and elegant building. The

management of the poor of this parish ia singular, it is intrusted to an additional overseer electe~ wnually,

who bas a salary of 1001. per annum, besides ]lCt·quisites and a residence in the parish workhouse, and who,

in consequence of a local and particular act of parliament, passed many years ago, is invested with powers
ditferin~ from any other overseers, in the kingdom ; a surgeon and apothecary is likewise paid at a fix~d
&alary for a.ttend~tnce on the poor. This to\vo is famous for the manufacturing of superfine broad cloth

from the best Saxon and Spanish. wool, which has been carried on here to a great extent, most of the priL&-

dpal clothiers kt'eping travellen and sending goods to all parts of the uuitcd kiugdom, indepeod('nt of the
foreign trade; it is not now so brisk as formerly, but yet is reviving again with every prospect of its fc~Hmer

.prosperity. There are in the town and its immediate neighbourhood, many extensh·e and handsome
f~~.ctories, worked ('ither by water or steam. There is likewise a large old building called Kingston
Hall, formerly the residence of the celebrated Duchess of Kingiton, The population js ~tbout 13,(109.

an arm of the Berkshire and Wiltshire canal, which comes up to the town Kennett and

Avon. The pa'l'ish church, is a very neat structure, with a beautiful tower, that contains a ring of

eight bells and a set of chimes. This principal ornament of the town, has of late undergone considerable

repairs, which. adds tB the beauty of the building and the comfort and convenience of its members. It ex-

hibits two orders of at·chitecture, Gothic and Norman. Here are also ,(\lms Houses and two cha1·ity schools

supported by voluntary contributions, and a Free Grammar School endowed in 1683, containing coosiderabl~

messuages for educnting seven classic and tlJirty English scholnrs, with exhibitions in Queen's College, Oxford.

FoRMERLY a Roman town, called Cunitio, derives its present name from its situation h~ing seated

at the foot of a marl or chalk hill. It is an ancient and respectable market-town, principally formed ofone

street called High-street, which has rather a singular effect the )louses being very dissimilar in size
and appearance, some built of wood, other~ of brick, and many in the ancient style, and on one side of

the !'!treel are piazzas,. where persons can promenade without detriment from the inclemency of the weathe...

The River Kennett, (which is here unnavigable) runs by this place .and takes its rise a few miles from hence.
Having no manufactures here, the inhabitants depend chiefly on the market (Saturday) wl1ich is admitted to

be one of the best in the West of England, being well supplied with corn, cheese and butcher's meat. Marl·

bro' being situated on the great western thoroughfare to London, Hath, &c. it thereby gains con!!iderable
support. Its municipal government is vested in a mayor, two justices, a few select burge11ses, a town clerk, &c.

It is a borough by prescription, and sends two members to parliament, the presl'nt representatives are the Hoo.J.

Wodehouse and Lord Bndenell. The town pm1sesses many great and valuable privileges, has a national and

an endowed grammar school. lt is divitled into two parishes, contains two churches, which are the principal

ornaments. of the town, and display several styles of architecture, There are also &anctuaries for dis-
senten;; a council hou111e, a house of correction, with four rourta, one of which is for females,and a building

(formerly a {;88tle) now converted into an inn, and bears the name of the "castl.e", the garden attached
to the building, in which there are very pleasant walks, displays a great deal of the beautiful and pichi-
resque, indeed it is a most eligible and highly respectable hotel. Sessions are held here in October for the

eounty. Fairs 11th July, 22nd August and 23rd November. The population is about 3000•

A LAR:<;E and llncient city of Wiltl'hirl.', sented on the Avon, 82 miles from London, and within one mile

of Old Sarum of notoriety, th« site of which is very perceptible owing to iu being a remarkable eminence.
It is formed in~ regular stn:.etsy through each of which runs a stream which tends greatly to the oomfort
and convenience. ut it!i inhabitants; owing to tbese canals and the natural dampness of the town~ there are

no cellars,. indeed it is so uneommonly dam}> t.Lat bodit-s bave ~n interred two feet in water. It hoasts a

commodious market-place,. an excPUent market on Tuet;day, a minornne on Saturday, and one every 'ruesday

fertnigbt for cattle. The manufacture of flannels, twrge!', linseys and cutlery, wllich once infinitely tended

to bt>nefit tile town, are now ~uef'd to a mere nothing. The cathedral b~ing the chief orpament, claims our

first notice; it is an elt>gant, chast-e and venerable pile, with a r;pire rising in the centre, erected in the yenr

1258, and dedicated to the Vh·gin Mary; the different style8 of srcbite..:ture which distiugui::hc& the spire,


to~tetber with the higher part of the tower,. from the r<>8t of the structure, has often induced critical judges

o£ Gothic architecture to suspect that the spir~ was add~d oo the tower at a period much posterior to the

original building, but no probable conj<>cttlre has yet been offi>red to determine its proper age; the arcliitt>c-

ture of the present tower and its spire is quite in that l'tyleof bnildinj!;which began to be in fashion about tbe

bPginniug of the fifteenth century; the quantity of timber in the se\Teral roofs, Recording to a moderate com-

putation laid before the lor.ds of tl:m treasury in the yem-1737, amounts to 2641 tons of oak. 'rbe figure$,

which were at one time part o£ its chief external ffl't'laments, "re 'nGW enti:r-ely dilapidMed ; yet it k probabiy

()lle of the IllWt exquisite, n~gular built sanctuarie~t in the 1.,-ipgdom, and contains as maoy windows as there

are days in the year; there are three other churche5 and several places of worship for disst'uters. The

council house Bituate in the south-east corn£>1' of the market-place was begnn in the year 17118, ami was com-

pleted in 179.1. it was erected a.t the expense of tha pr~sent Earl of Ratlnor, recorder of the city, who made

this munificent present to the corporation; it is a ~Square building, with a gmnd doric portico at the entrance

to the two courts of law on the west side, and a larR"e bay window projecting from the great room to the eAst.

'l'he pdnciplll entrance is on th<> north side by a flight of steps leading tCJ the dool' through a noble facade,

cnn;;isting of £our columns of the Doric order9 and crowned hy it~; proper enhblature, tmd a balustrade; the
whole is surrounded by a rich cornice of the above-mentioned ordet", and the an3Ies of each front are oma-

mented with very handsome rustic work in stone: it c;onsists of only oTl<' floor, which are the two rourts, a

council room, a grand jury room, apartment~ for the sevt>ral offices of the corPQration. a waiting room and a

v~tibale. In the courts, wbich occupy the whole of the \eft win~. are holden tke.~s, and the Mssions o£

the peace for the city, county and elose; one of them, which is the bishop's guild-hall, i8~istinguished by a

mitre, cut in stone, over the great door, and is the }llace in which tile lord bishop h~ds his courta lee'

and baron. nnd his court of record of pleas; each of them measures 36 feet, by 24, and 30 feet in height,

and is provided with a eommoJious gallery for the audience. The Poultry Cross~ AS it is called, (to distin~

guish it from two other crosses which formerly stood in the eit~·) is situated just without thE- south-west

comer of the mru·ket-place, and deserves notice on aceount of the pm-post' for which it was ert>eted. Io

Fox's Boo& of Martyrs, we l(re informed that eo Among the friends of Wykliffe was an Earl of Salisbury,

wlw9' for contempt noted in bim towards the sacrament, in carrying it home to his house, \vas enjoined by

Ralph Ergham. Bishop of the same place, to make in .Salisbury a- cross of stone,. i» which aU the story ol

the matter should be written, and he every Friday during hia 1ife-to. eome to the cross barefooted ud bare-

headed, in his shirt, and there upon his knees to do penanctl for bis act. The nameu the Earl iJ 41upposed

to_be John de Montacute; its form is hexagonal, and ovel' each nr.cb remains a nichl! for a statu~. it i~t re-

dnet>d to half its height by tbe demolition of the upper part, which might ha:v.e taken place :at the time ol

the t-eformation, an age hateful to images and crosses; by the style of part of it we may fairly judge &hat

it was a handsome pi!!Ce of Gothic art'hiteclure. There are se,•eral charily sebools io thi5 city, and other

charitable institutious. Its municipal government is vested in a mayor, recorder,.deputy-reronler, 24 alrlw·

men, 10 of whom besides the mayor, recorder and depnty-roconler, and mayol' fer tl1e year pre<'eding, are

justires of the peace, thirty commoJJ cooncil and a town clerk. 'l'be Earl .of Pembroke is Lor-d High

Steward of the city, It laolds the ft>llowing fairs: first Twellflay after 6th January, for cattle and woollen

cloth. l'fend3y before old lady day foil woollen cloth, Whitsun Monday and Tuesday, for horses and pedlary;

and the Tuesday after: Weyhill-fl\ir for hops, cheese, &e. &c. It returns t\Yo membet·s to parliament, and

according to the last census. contains as follo\vs • city and close, 8580, an incr~ase of 337 only~ within &he 1ua

A CONSIDERABLE town situate on the rh•er Were, distant 98 miles wt>st of Lonrlon, ICJ from Bath,

and about l.he same distance from Frome and W11rminster; i-t is only thrt>e miles from its neighbourhl!J

rival, Bradford, This town was formerly famous for a castle bl.'long;ing to tbe ancient Duke!) of Lancaster,
but which wa~ ~' elelln~down•• in Le! and's time, except two of its se\·en !!reat towers. and now not the

lenst remains- of it Are to be 1;een. The Earls of Sarum were the andcnt Lor<ls of tl1is plare, then. lbe
Dukes of Uwlcaster,. and in Leland's time the Earl of Hertford. A conrt for the Duchy of Lancaster is
held here annually at; Micha~lmas. Here is A good stnne bridge over the river Wer('", but the homes in

ge_neral are ir.l'egular a.nd ill built, except those that luwe been lately erectell, which are very numerous~ it is

sai!l nQt les15 than three hundred hom~es have been very recently built. There is no pnblic building that
merits particular atwntion. The church is a plain structure; the present rector is the Rev. George Crabbt>~
whoa~ ~elebrity as a poet is universally known. The several denominations of diSl\enters ha\'e: commodious
pla~s of worship, and are num~ronsly attended. 'fhia place has long been remarkable for its staple trade,
that of manufacturing English and Spanish wool into broa1l cloths and kerseym~~·~, though it is alm1 st
solely employed in th~; manufacture of the lattt'l'1 some of the finrst sort bring mnrle here entirely-uf
Spanish wool, and said .to be the best in this country. Th~ town of Trowbrillge and the immediate neigh-
bourhood ~lerive <'Ollsiderablc benefit f.rom the canals that have been beg-un and completed during tlae la~t .
twenty yenrs, which open a very extensive communication by w~tcr with all pnrts of tile kingdo .•l. Tba

Kennetand Avon Canal passes within a mile of Trowbridge, and at Ba.tb joins the Avon. whkh is navigable
f1·om thence throu~b Bristol to the Sc"ern. A few milrs from Brub the Somerset C0al Canals bring into the
Kennet and Avon that valuable arti~lt', to be forwart!ud through a great extent of country. at a -price it
could not other\vise be attainable. The easterll ronrse of the Kennet and Avon Canal i~tfrom Trowbridge

to De"t"izes, fron1 theuce to Huugerford, and at Nt'wbury it enters the mwigablc K.enuet river, which falls
into the Thames at Reading. thus opening to the ·western counfies a direct communication by watrr 'vith

the metropolis. The population of this plare is estimated at about 10,000 [email protected], . mal,.ing an

increase of more than 3000 since the last census was taken. 'flte weekly mnrket is on Saturllay, and there·

is a fair 6th of August.

A POPULm;s town, 8itni'\tecl near the Ure:>tern c>xtremit:v of the C.()unty o( Wilt!!, di~;tant ft·om l.ontfuh

99 milt·!-1, Frome 7,. \Vesibnry 4, ·rrowh1idge 9, Bradford 11, Bath 16, and Salisbury 20 miles. le is v~rt

t'lca.santly situate<1 on the rh·er Willey, which rises in the rreighbourhoo<J, and pursues a south Tt'St course;
till it forms a junction witb the Avon at Salisbm~·· The bt>autiful meanderings cf rh·er, amidst a tyro~

fu,..ion ()r- i'oManti& ,rrovc~ ~ncl verchmt pastures, form Ei tlistinguishing feature of the ~>cen'rry Otl the sontb

~;.irle of tl1e townJ -and losl's none of it.01 eh'cct from being contrasted with the bold aptwarance of the nortlt,
w:-aere 1\ra lf\r~~ opp.o-fi~tldt& of eorn, lying at the foot of a lofty range of hills, forming th~ t>dp;:e of the

celebrated Salisbury plain"' Warminstt>r appears to be a place of great antiquity. Cflrr.deH' waS' of 1\pinion

tf1at this \V~ll .o~n 11ncicnt town men tioncd by Antonius in his hinerary, and c-alll'd Yelurilt; it rtt>rives its

present name from Per, a .part of it.~ ori;:;inal appellation, 1\nd mi1zster, from a mon11.~tery that wafi form('rly

here. \Vhat s.eem.~ most to ~;orrobor:\te the antU]uity of this town i8 the eircnmstance of a hanusome tesse--

)ated pavement having hel'n found within a short di8tance of it, and is snppo!!!ed to have belonged to a Rotn1m

sudatory. This pll\'CIJlt'nt was 56 feet by 10 feet, and on ~t. lay a mutilated statue- of D1&.na, with a hl'lfe 1rt
her f~et; ~t was remov~d to Longleat by command of the )ate- Marquis of Bat b. There are also a great

bmnber of tumuli and fnrtifkatipns in tha nehthbourhood ; a variety of sae.Lificia.l instruments, -armonr 110d

coins have beerr found here, Hnd ot ')!lace called the Barrows or Berry's, some lnbourers, who were digging
a ditch, 'f'ouncl various relics of Roman antiquity~ with three l11rge YKses, full of coins and brass medals, the

most numemus of which were those of Probus, Tacitus and Ga1Iienus. Warminst£'r consists principally of

one long street, wltich l,aas becq divided iuto .others of various names. It has lately been considerably im-

proved by tbe removal of tl1e mei\U an<l dilapidated buifiJings in the street nowc~lled Gt>orge-strt'et, and 'the

t•recting o( nt>at and commodious houses on their site. There have· also very rec~ntly been t>rectl'd several
elegant and lofty houses, it~ other parts of the town. The church is a handsome strncturc, on the .Bath

road; tbe nave and sid~ ailes were rebuilt within the last century; it deserves notice for it~ neatness, and

has an P.legant organ built by England. Here is also a chapel, with a ~pire, near the, which

is a private endowment, yested in the hands of certain fuoffees, the survivors having a power to till up the

vacancy caused .in their number by death. It is dedicated to St~ Lawr.eoce, and for .the conveoienre of the
inhabitants prayers ftre read there on Wednesdays and Ft;uays, and on red letter days; the vestry meetings

are t~lso bel<! here. The town hall stands in a couspicueus though inconvenient sitntttion, at the t>nd of the

Market-place, and has no claim to particular attent\on. In it the quarter Sl'ssion of the peace is Rnnually

held, viz. the 7th of July. In Chnreh-stl'eet is a frl'e grammar s.cbo.ol, built ancl c>ndowed with £30 pt•r

annum, by the late Lord Visceunt Weymouth, for the education of twenty boys of the-towo. his- un,Jer

the patronage of the Marquis of Bath, who is the linl'al descendant of the foundeJ". The <Rc.>T-C• T.

Griffitb is the present master. In the same street is l\ national school, instituted in 1815, for tbeeducation

of about ~00 poor hoys Rnd girls ; it is supported by annual subscriptions. The present mRSter iA Mr.

James Shears. Here are also four di:~~entin!!' places of worsliip, viz. a Socinian, M_ethodist, Baptist, and
an Independent, the interior of tbe last of which is particularly neat and elegant. 'l~ht> clotbing •rad;a Wl\.8

formerly of considerable importance hl're, but it has for some years past been rapidly doclining, a.nd is now
l1ardly wot:thy of observation. There is, lwweve1·, a considerable retail trade carried oq, aqrl ~h~ shops are

in general very-select an1l attractive. The corn market, which i!l' held weekly (on Saturday} .is. and ever

has been much cPtebra.ted for its ~m pie supply and the number of f;umrrs and dealers who frequent it. J~

pt>culiar features are, thllt the sacks are pitched in the open market, and that al~ ~ales are for r<:ady mopey

onlv. Hoth Le1nnd and Camden make mention of the mngnitmleof this market. Tht>re is also a consideralJ!c

tnu:ie ia malt. The civi] police of this place is superinte[\ded by the neighbouring magistratc>s, (who assemble
at the Bath'' Arms Inn oru."e a month for the purpose} and the Hi~h. C•>nstahle, who, with the ffl'lhordtrmte

conlitables and tithing men, 11re annually chosen at the court-1el't of the M arqnis etf Betl1, who is Lord uf the

AN ancient borough-town, is said to have {}!'rived its name from it'! situation at the western extremity of

Salisbury plain; though son1e are of opinion that it is from its bavin~ b~en one .of the most considerable

Roman towns or station~ in the west, it was without doubt w~ll known to that people; great qmmtities of
coins and relique$ havingbeen found heN'. It consi~ti chiefly o{ one stre~t, running nl'arly north and sout&

at the latter-extremity of which is the church, a. neat and venerable pile, built in the be~inning of the 13th

century, it haa a tine peal of ht'avy bells and a mo<lern orgtut. The charter of incorporation of this borou;:;:b~

was gl"'Ultx>d by Edw.ard 1st. and by it the municipal government of the town was vested in a mayor, N'COil(}ei',
twelve aldermen and other office~'!"; it has sent repre:.entatives to parliament,. ever r.ince thl} original trummons

in the reign of Henry the VI. The mayor is the returning officer~ (and the number of voters does not exceed

twenty·four) who holds a court-lcet yearly for the borough in November ; and the steward of the Loa·d o( tbc

l\lanor, another in .May, for the hnndl'('d, the mnnor belongs to Sir Manassch Lopez, who purchased it of the

Earl of ALingdon. ~The town-hall which is a rec!'nt erection, was the gift of Sir Manasseh I..opez, it is a

n 'el'Y neat, elegant t"difi~. A school for the education of the poor children of the town, mr the Lanca!'tcrian
principle, bas recently been ~tablish!'d, fnr the Rupport of which the late Mr. John Matravers, n.n inhabi-

tant left a legacy of .£1000. with other charitable donations, which we trust will fully answer

the end intended by thl' benevolent donor. The cloathing trade was formerly carried on here to a wrr great

extent, but it has beeo on the decline for many yeats p:>st ; there is now hulliever a oom.idcrable manuacturc

litlilttsfJfr t ..

of cloth hMe, and in the nt'ighbourhood, t-mployinf( a large number of poor people. The hundred ot West-

bury il4 but one parish, th~population of which, Rlt latdy takMt, amount to nearly 7000 'inhabitants. Besides

\Ve:stbury Church, there are two cl1apels of ease, the one at Brattoo, the other at Dilton. A market fur
corn, &c. ~as been recently established here, whkh is held weekly on 'foesday instead oi Friday as hereto-
fore. Fairs the first F!iid~y in Lent, Easter l\Jonday and Whit, Monday for pedlary. About two miles
from this town, is Bratton CatStle, 8. Danish encampment, on the brow of a hill, where the DlllliHI bel~ut
against the English, fourteen days after their defellt, it is encompassed with a double entN!nchment. On the.
southwest side of this hUl is the figure of a white horse, in a walking attitude, -eut out of the chalk. forming

the 1lUhstratum of the soil, some suppose this to have been made to commemorate the celcbl':.\ted victw-y

gained by A)fr~d over the Darus, at Edington about two milrs from it1 whilst others are of opinion, and is

most probable, that it is of eompamtively modern workmanship ..
