Fairly new houses, Woodland View, Wroughton
There are only a few houses (and a pub) in Woodland View and they are mostly set back from the road. These modern houses are quite close to the road and may occupy the site of what was once a toll house. 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 junction of Woodland View with the original main road is just beyond the tree in the background.
