Amesbury is situated 8 miles north of Salisbury, with Salisbury Plain further to the north. The town is surrounded by an ancient landscape. The parish boundary of Amesbury encompasses the Neolithic site of Stonehenge - a world heritage site which attracts over a million visitors a year.

 

Amesbury is steeped in history. It is an older settlement than Salisbury, founded in 979 when an Abbey was built.

 

Over the past 30 years the town has seen major housing developments to the south, with Kings Gate the most recent, still under construction.
