Welcome to Pewsey Poster


Pewsey is located in the county of Wiltshire in the southern part of England. You can easily access Pewsey via train, direct from London Paddington station.

This village of about 3500 residents (5000 including surrounding area) boasts the 'Oldest Carnival in Wiltshire'. Pewsey and District Feast and Carnival, held annually for two weeks in mid September, culminates in a colourful and wacky 'procession' of floats, bands, performers and people in all manner of fancy-dress!

Pewsey was once owned by the Saxon king, King Alfred. The crossroads of Pewsey is home to a prominent stone statue of the King, unveiled in June 1913 to commemorate the coronation of George V.



After two years restricted by COVID, the much-loved Wilton Windmill will open again to the public after Easter.

The mill will be open for visitors on Sundays and Bank Holidays from Easter until September 25.

Guided tours will run between 2pm and 5pm and the recently-acquired Granary Museum will be available to explore.

Visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics, and hot and cold drinks, ice creams and cakes will be available in the shepherd's hut.

Special attractions this year include the return on Saturday June 18 of the popular Smoke and Mirrors Theatre Company with their not-wholly serious Murder Mystery. This year it's The Nile High Club, featuring passion, poison and pyramids - an unforgettable way to spend a summer evening, complete with hog-roast.

And on the weekend of July 29,30 and 31, we will be celebrating - a year late! - our Bicentenary. The highlight will be a memorable event, Crop to Crust, when we hope to have authentic vintage farm machinery on site to thresh the wheat before it's ground in the mill, and finally baked into delicious loaves of wholemeal bread. Check our website for full details nearer the time.
