    6 Quirky Facts About Wilton

    1. Carpets & Smugglers
      Wilton was making cloth since the Middle Ages and the Weavers of Wilton were granted a royal charter in 1699. In 1721 Earl Henry Herbert of Pembrokeshire (owner of Wilton House) smuggled two Huguenots carpet makers out of France. He had become interested in the idea of carpets while travelling through France and Holland. The story is that he actually smuggled the weavers out using wine barrels, what is certain is that Anthony Dufosse and Peter Jamaule set about teaching the local weavers to make ‘Brussels carpet’. Machines from Axminster, Devon were bought in to help with production and Wilton and Axminster carpets went on to become a mark of quality throughout the world.
    2. Camouflage
      During WWII the factories in Wilton stopped producing floor coverings and instead used their machinery and skills to manufacture camouflage, webbing, kitbags and tarpaulins for the Allied troops.
    3. What a Herbert
      Another Henry Herbert (the name passed down through generations) rose to prominence as a soldier of fortune who fought for King Francis I of France. It was King Francis who recommended Herbert service to Henry VIII. With a family seat in Wales, Herbert soon became one of King Henry’s most trusted advisors, he was given the Wilton Estate by the King, was knighted and married Anne Parr, sister of Catherine Parr (the last of the King’s many wives).
    4. Wiltunscire
      That wasn’t the town’s only dealing with royalty. In fact, Wilton was much loved by Alfred the Great and at one time a much more important town than its much smaller neighbour Salisbury. Alfred founded Wilton Abbey and made the town the capital of Wiltunscire. It was Henry the VIII who destroyed the abbey, giving Wilton to Sir Henry Herbert who went on to build what today is one of England’s finest stately homes on the exact site of the former abbey.
    5. Battle of Wilton (Take 1)
      In 871 Alfred the Great fought a decisive battle in Wilton. Having been surprised and outmanoeuvred by the Vikings, King Alfred (whose vision was to unite the feuding kingdoms of Britain into a single ‘Englaland’) was forced to flee and hid in the marshes of Somerset for a number of years while planning a route back to power. Eventually, his supporters rallied to his call and in another decisive battle, that again took place in Wiltshire (Westbury), what was left of Alfred’s forces defeated the Danes and Alfred went on to unite the kingdoms. Eventually, it was his grandson Athelstan that became the first King of what we now recognise as England.
    6. Battle of Wilton (Take 2)
      In July 1143 during The Anarchy King Stephen mustered his forces at Wilton Abbey but again a king was on the losing side. That night Robert Earl of Gloucester (half-brother of usurper Empress Matilda) who had formerly been the chief supporter of Stephen, mounted a surprise attack, the King fought back but a cavalry charge beat his troops down and he was forced to flee the burning abbey while a number of his troops formed a rear-guard (many were captured and put to death). Both King Stephen and Robert were captured in separate battles and later exchanged.

While it’s most famous for its carpets, the town has a wonderful history of kings, Herberts and even Frenchmen being smuggled in wine barrels (well, what else would you smuggle a Frenchman in?). It is home to a superb shopping village, as well as easy access to the famous market and high street names of Salisbury. However, Wilton enjoys a village feel while offering you big city accessibility.
