"Devizes, "Wiltshire's hidden gem", is a medieval market town in the centre of Wiltshire just north of Salisbury Plain, 16 miles from Stonehenge, 8 miles from Avebury. The building of a castle in Norman times dictated the layout of the town which is still visible in the ‘D’ shape plan today, now containing over 250 shops, 50 Heritage Plaques, 50+ eating places and tea shops, 14 traditional pubs, 5 pedestrian only shopping precincts, 3 ancient churches, 2 museums, including the awarding winning Wiltshire Museum, the Kennet & Avon Canal Trust, the “Caen flight” of canal locks and a working Victorian (Wadworth) brewery that runs tours and tastings." Devizes.org

"One of the the largest market towns in Wiltshire, Devizes stands on the Kennet and Avon Canal and is home to the Wiltshire Museum and the Wadworth Brewery Visitor Centre. The history of the settlement dates back to the time of Norman conquest when a castle was established here. During it's early years a flourishing sheep market took place in the broad fields below the castle grounds, around which a thriving medieval town later developed."
