    7 Quirky Facts About Pewsey

    1. It’s Grrrrrrreat!
      Pewsey was once owned and inhabited by Alfred the Great, the King of Wessex whose vision brought about the creation of ‘Englaland’ as a single nation (prior to that it was made up of several smaller kingdoms). After a great victory over the Danes, Alfred stood in the doorway of Pewsey church and declared that September the 14th should be celebrated as a feast day. The tradition continues to this day, which is the oldest carnival in Wiltshire and there is a statue in honour of the Great man in the village.
    2. Carnival!
      Forget Rio, Pewsey carnival is a totally different but equally madcap affair. Part of events that last over a two-week period, Pewsey and the surrounding villages come together to mark the tradition started by Alfred the Great. There is a street procession, children’s parade, live bands, duck race, pub nights, racing nights and also the Feaste Ball. In times gone by the event has included cricket matches, athletics days, bicycle obstacle courses.
    3. White Horse
      Pewsey is associated with two of the eight Wiltshire white horses. In 1937 a white horse was created to commemorate the coronation of King George VI, this was a new design laid over the top of an existing white horse that dated back to 1785. The second horse can be found running over the fields of nearby Alton Priors Hill. Measuring 54 metres high and 48 metres long, it was the creation of a local farmer and forms part of Wiltshire’s White Horse Trail.
    4. Danger UXB!
      Largely unaffected by WWII (even rationing didn’t severely hit this farming community), a number of stray bombs did hit the local area, believed to have been dropped by German bombers, lightening their load before crossing back to mainland Europe. In the 1980’s builders renovating the French Horn pub uncovered undetonated bombs, if renovation work wasn’t bad enough for the locals, the unexploded devices meant the pub had to close while they were made safe!
    5. Drawing A Vale
      Pewsey sits in a vale, aptly named the Vale of Pewsey, which along with the famous white horse is also home to the Avon and Kennet Canal, a lovely place to take a walk and Pewsey Wharf, where you can take a barge trip, try canoeing or just enjoy a delightful bite to eat in the Wiltshire sunshine.
    6. Domesday Book
      It might not be big but it was certainly important enough to feature in the Domesday Book of 1086. A record created by William the Conqueror many modern larger towns don’t have the destinction of being featured, even major cities like London, Liverpool and Bristol weren’t covered in the documents. At the time Pewsey consisted of 46 villagers, 24 farmers, 6 serfs and had 7 mills.
    7. Aliens?!?
      The vale has had its fair share of crop circles over the years and today the village is home to the Crop Circle Centre and Exhibition. While many circles have been claimed by pranksters, there are still a large number of unexplained circles that many crop circle enthusiasts believe to be the work of alien visitors. The truth is out there…
