Further information:

St Laurence‘s Church dates from around 1150, but an earlier Saxon church, consecrated by St Birinus in 638 AD, once stood on this site. The Grade I listed Church and adjoining Manor House now provide a dramatic backdrop for the cottages and apartments at Church Leat and some enviable views. Tanning has long been a tradition in Downton and records show a tanner operating in the village as early as 1215. A significant local industry in the 18th and 19th centuries the new ‘Tannery‘ was built in 1905 and has since been converted to apartments.

Communications: Access : Just six miles from Salisbury, with its historic cathedral close and extensive shopping and cultural facilities, Downton also benefits from the city‘s regular Intercity rail services to London Waterloo (90 minutes). Ringwood and the A31 to Bournemouth and Poole is about 11 miles away.
