About Maiden Bradley
The Wiltshire Downs, especially around Maiden Bradley village, are wonderful. The landscape our village nestles in is various and memorable. The place is saturated with history and nature. Short distances can reveal dramatic changes of vista. Little Knoll and Long Knoll, for example, are otherworldly; either from a distance, or up on their heights looking at either of them - plus the distant views they offer. Skyscapes are icing on the cake! My interest is in all of it, through the ever-changing seasons. There are many English Heritage listed buildings and monuments in our area. - Submitted by haikurambler
