paragraphWhy Move To Devizes
Sitting between Salisbury Plain and the Vale of Pewsy, Devizes is a pretty market town offering beautiful Georgian architecture, tranquility and a friendly community feel.
WHETHER YOU LIKE CULTURE, HISTORY, KEEPING FIT OR THE GREAT OUTDOORS, THERE'S PLENTY TO DO IN DEVIZES
paragraphA little Bit Of History
Devizes castle has been subjected to many a power struggle over the years. From the conflict between Stephen and Matilda in the 12th Century. To the English Civil War, when Royalists lost control and Parliament had the castle dismantled. The Victorians later rebuilt the castle, which, though not open to the public, can be seen from various points around the town.
Beyond the castle, Devizes history is inextricably linked to the textile trade and Georgian times from which many of our buildings date. Off Market Place, Long Street is particularly admired for its Georgian facades.
