Things to do: sightseeing
Fovant is a medium-sized village and civil parish in southwest Wiltshire, England. It is located between Salisbury and Shaftesbury on the A30 road in the Nadder valley. Its name is derived from the Old English Fobbefunta, meaning "spring of a man called Fobbe".GovernanceThe village is part of the 'Fovant and Chalke Valley' electoral ward. The ward begins in the Netherhampton parish just to the west of Salisbury, stretches west to Bishopstone and north west to Fovant, ending at Tollard Royal. The population of the ward at the 2011 census was 4,315.Military connectionsDuring the First World War, temporary camps were built in the Fovant area to handle training and medical treatment of soldiers, and later their demobilisation. The Fovant Military Railway was built in 1915 from Dinton station, passing close to Fovant with a terminus east of the village near the A30. The camps stretched beyond Compton Chamberlayne into Barford St Martin parish, and included Hurdcott Camp which was a depot of the Australian Imperial Force (AIF).
