Celebrating Wiltshire Wildlife: 50 years of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust

on Tuesday, 18 December 2012. Posted in Wiltshire Places

This year the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust is celebrating its 50th anniversary. To highlight the trust’s valuable work in the county, I thought I’d take a look at the history behind one of Wiltshire’s many tranquil reserves, Blakehill Farm.

Blakehill straddles two parishes, that of Cricklade and Purton. The area of Blakehill Farm was called Blake Hill on a map of 1774; ironic as its later use required a flat area!
