Bradshaw’s Guide

Westbury

This is an ancient borough, with a malting and broad cloth trade. Bryan Edwards, the historian, was a native. About two miles north-east is an ancient encampment, on the edge of the chalk downs near Bralton; on the escarpment below it is the figure of a white horse, the origin of which is doubtful and obscure. Four miles beyond is Erie Stoke Park, the seat of Lord Broughton.
