We discover how women in Wiltshire fought for the vote, find out how the legend of Salisbury’s dancing hares has inspired new sculptures and look at some of our most eccentric buildings: follies.
You can also meet Salisbury MP John Glen and actress Gwen Taylor.
We travel the county too, bringing you features on magical Marlborough, Sutton Veny and the Deverills. Elsewhere, Robert Murphy looks at the how the NHS crisis is affecting the county.

Dauntsey’s explore the importance of expanding the reach of schools through bursaries, while Godolphin explain why a modern Sixth Form curriculum offers more than just A-levels. We look at holistic approaches that provide a well-rounded education: Stroud School on its Eco-School status; Sidcot on its Quaker values and peaceful outlook; St Margaret’s, Calne, on the sporting life lessons of being competitive but caring. We also explore the emotional side of being a parent, and of the importance of placing emotional wellbeing at the centre of curriculum at Hazlegrove. We find out how Leehurst Swan is building on its excellence, and accepting the challenge of always improving, while at Clayesmore the emphasis is on creating environments where all children are inspired and nurtured.
