Wroughton buildings [16]
The Fox and Hounds was built in the late 1860s to replace an earlier beerhouse named The Drum and Monkey which burnt down.
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.
