The Northern Area



The Northern Area stretches from the slopes of Salisbury Plain to the outskirts of the famous City and is dominated by the spectacular valley of the River Avon.

The principal town of Amesbury has a range of shops and facilities serving the valley villages of the Till, Avon and Bourne. The MOD has a significant presence with large military camps at Bulford and Larkhill and extensive training facilities on the Plain.

Stonehenge can be found just a couple of miles from Amesbury and is evidence of the areas ancient and mysterious past.
