The small area which makes up North East Wiltshire is a continuation west from Berkshire along the M4 and A4 corridor. Although moving from the South East region of England to the South West the villages and countryside have a similar feel and appearance from there until you reach Swindon. Here the landscape is dominated by the chalk hills of the Wiltshire Downs to the south and east. The area includes the Marlborough Downs which are classified as an area of outstanding natural beauty.
South of the market town of Marlborough lies Savernake Forest. At well over 1000 years old this is one of the oldest woodlands in England and is where Henry Vlllth met Jane Seymour.
The Kennet & Avon canal runs through North East Wiltshire from Honey Street to Little Bedwyn.
