Biddestone is a beautiful village, situated in North Wiltshire, England. It can trace its history back to Saxon times,  although most buildings are from the late 18th century. The village is part of the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  We have two pubs and one church, several B&Bs, a children’s playground and a sports field. Oh, and a duck pond which is home to some of the best fed ducks in Wiltshire.

A couple of miles away, but still within Biddestone’s parish, is the small village of Slaughterford. Slaughterford nestles in a steep valley with the By Brook running through the village.  For a small community surrounded by beautiful countryside Slaughterford has some surprising, but well hidden, industrial remains.
