TisburyThe picturesque village of Tisbury has an air of timelessness about it.  It is the largest village in the Nadder Valley and Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and was first settled in Saxon times possibly with a monastery.   Its name is derived from the Saxon name Tysse’s Burgh, meaning ‘the stronghold of Tysse’s people’.  A village however, may have existed as far back as the Bronze Age 3-4,000 years ago with its very own henge monument or stone circle near Place Farm.  The Stone circle has long gone but the last 3 central stones were used to construct the grotto at Old Wardour Castle.  It is an excellent base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and AONB.  Wander along its friendly High Street browsing in the assortment of gift and craft shops.  
Tisbury Railway Station.  Constructed in 1859.  Currently managed by South West Trains and on the London Waterloo to Exeter Line.  Salisbury is only about 10 minutes away via train.

St John the Baptist Church.  The parents of famous author Rudyard Kipling are buried in the churchyard of this 12th Century church.  There is also a giant yew tree believed to be over 4,000 years old and one of the oldest in Britain.
The Medieval Village of Wyck.   A field of rough grass crossed by tracks and a footpath overlooking the Nadder Valley on the South West edge of Tisbury along Monmouth Road is all that remains of the ancient lost village of Wyck.
