Guide to Wroughton
Wroughton is one of the biggest parishes in the UK and boasts a population of more than 7,000.
It is well known for its connection to The Ridgeway, a National Trail related to the Uffington White Horse.
The village has a rich history, dating back to the Mesolithic period.
From 1855 to 1930, Wroughton hosted the annual Feast, a week-long summer fair attended by farmers and residents from North Wiltshire.
Wroughton is home to many shops and businesses. Once best known as the home of RAF Wroughton, which closed in 1995, the village is now associated with one of Britain's greatest collection of national treasures. The old airfield is home to a collection of spectacular Science Museum exhibits, many of them incapable of being displayed in London because they are too large.
