The Check Inn, Woodland View, Wroughton
The Check Inn, Woodland View, Wroughton
The pub has been renamed in recent years. It used to be called The Black Horse. In the days before the M4 opened in the early 1970s Woodland View was part of Croft Road, the main route south from Swindon towards Avebury and Devizes. The construction of the motorway provided the opportunity to divert the main road, widening it and removing a bend. The old stretch of Croft Road is now in two cul de sacs either side of the motorway of which this is the southern section. The pub sits almost on the top of the cutting through which the motorway passes.
