The Mere Area



Mere, with a population of just over 2,000 is the main population centre in an area dominated by beautiful chalk downland and small greens and villages.

It is an area influenced by agriculture retaining strong rural traditions and communities. The people of the area look towards the Dorset Towns of Shaftesbury and Gillingham for major facilities such as senior schools and leisure facilities. The beautiful landscaped gardens at Stourhead attract tourists from all over the Country to an area of Wiltshire that retains a gentle timeless quality.
