Fairwater House, built circa 1700, was the centre of a racehorse training and stabling establishment. The name Fairwater was adopted after a horse with that name won the Ascot Gold Vase. There is another view at SU1480 : Wroughton houses [18]. Listed, grade II, with details at: LinkExternal link
The large village of Wroughton lies 2 miles south of Swindon at the foot of the Marlborough Downs escarpment. Two headstreams of the River Ray flow from the downs and meet in the village to run north as Wroughton Stream. There is much evidence of settlement and intensive farming of the area in the Roman period. Originally an agricultural village, most workers now commute into Swindon.
