About Us

The village of Poulshot is roughly rectangular in shape (just over 2 miles by 1½ miles) stretching from the Kennet and Avon canal in the north to the Worton/Seend road in the south with most properties alongside the main road through the village. The main feature of the village (apart from the Church and the Pub!) is the large village green in the centre.

Although small (just over 400 men, women and children according to the 2011 census) it’s an active, friendly, rural village with an interesting mix of backgrounds, from those who can trace their Poulshot links back many generations to those who’ve recently moved in.

You can find out more about what used to happen by following the 'Our heritage' link (to the right) or what’s going on now by clicking on the 'What’s On' or 'Village Organisations' links above.


Poulshot is also famous as the holiday home of Wadworth Brewery's shire dray horses - every year the horses arrive for a two-week break from their beer delivery duties in and around Devizes, and spend their time grazing in the open - and even enjoy a pint of their own! Their arrival is a huge spectacle every year, and people join the village from miles around.
