Why is Devizes such an idyllic location?
Devizes is a market town located in the heart of Wiltshire, 15 miles away from the M4. Devizes Castle was built by the Bishop of Salisbury in 1080, but changed hands several times during the civil war in the 12th century. The Kennet and Avon Canal was built between 1794 and 1810, linking Devizes with Bristol and London. Devizes’ canal locks are visited by most who visit, and the starting point of the annual Devizes to Westminster International Canoe Marathon is by the Wharf Theatre in the town. In the early 18th century, Devizes held the largest corn market in the West Country, trading in hops, cattle, horses and various cloth. The pond near the Green, known as The Crammer, is claimed to be site of the 18th-century story where men hid barrels of brandy in the water, and retrieved them at night, which led to a colloquial name for people from Wiltshire being ‘Moonrakers’. The brewery Wadworth was founded in Devizes, famous for its 6X and IPA. Devizes is known for its popular weekly food and goods market, as well as rich history. Devizes was recently named as the 4th best place to live in the UK in a survey carried out by property consultancy group CACI.
