Latest reviews | Events in Hindon | 10 Places to Stay

This Wiltshire village was once a thriving market town originally established by the Bishop des Roches of Winchester. By 1754 there were 14 inns and public houses in Hindon. Unfortunately, the same year the town was razed by a terrible fire that left just one of the inns and little else of the old town standing after burning out of control for four hours. A new town was quickly established with help of a relief fund that collected money from as far afield as Canterbury. When the first mail coach stopped here on its journey from London to Exeter on 2nd August, 1784 the town was on the up again. By 1800, The Lamb was reputed to keep 300 post horses in its stabling. Unfortunately the railway passed Hindon by and it declined again, this time slipping back to village life after six centuries of enjoying town status. Hindon is situated within the Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its quintessentially English rural architecture includes Thomas Henry Wyatt's St John The Baptist Church which was completed in 1871. It is built using stones from an earlier chapel and local Chilmark and Red Bed Farleigh Down Stone.
