The Dene

Lockeridge Dene and Piggledene are sheltered valleys containing well developed ‘boulder streams’ of sarsen stones. These stones are of ecological interest for the lichens and mosses which they support as well as having geological  importance.

The sites were purchased by the National Trust in 1908 following a public appeal and were the first countryside properties in Wiltshire. Prior to this sarsen stones were removed to provide building materials.


West Woods

Located to the south west of Marlborough, West Woods is a beautiful former ancient woodland site. Popular all year round with a number of walks and easy access trails it is particularly well visited in the spring with a splendid display of bluebells.
