Church Farm campsite is close to and just to the east of Marlborough at the village of Mildenhall. Not only is it an ideal centre from which to explore Wiltshire it makes a good stopping site enroute to Southwest England.

There are many places of interest to visit in and around Marlborough. Within easy reach are the mysterious prehistoric stone circles of Avebury, arguably more interesting and covering a larger area than those of its more famous cousin Stonehenge.

Not only was Marlborough an important and historic medieval town of Saxon origins but the village Mildenhall has its own roots firmly in the past. Known as Cunetio it was occupied by the Romans and formed the junction of several important roads some of which are still in evidence today.

Just a few miles to the southeast of the town is one of the oldest forests in England, the Savernake, where medieval kings held court and hunted. Today it is open to the public and boasts a wide range of rare species of wildlife such as nightjars, Purple Emperor and White Admiral butterflies. There are many forest walks to be enjoyed especially during the seasons of spring and autumn.

The Kennet and Avon Canal lies just to the south and is great for walks, cycling, wildlife or just enjoying the tranquil relaxed atmosphere. Maybe doing a spot of fishing from the towpath, The picturesque villages of Great and Little Bedwyn overlook the canal as does the only remaining working beam engine at Crofton. Al little further up from the canal is the Wilton Windmill of the village of the same name. Both have limited opening to the public and it is as well to check before you visit.
