Other local amenities can be found in the nearby villages of Codford and Shrewton whilst the larger centres of Salisbury, Amesbury and Warminster provide a more extensive range of shopping, leisure and educational facilities. The A303 runs approximately 4 miles to the south giving good road access to London (M3) and the West Country.
