Rowde is a village and civil parish in the English county of Wiltshire, on the A342 about 1.7mi northwest of Devizes.HistoryThe village now mainly consists of modern brick built houses, but a number of 17th century buildings still remain in the centre of the village including the George & Dragon public house. The George & Dragon was pre-dated in the village by another pub, a timber framed and thatched building that was destroyed by fire in 1938; a replacement The Cross Keys now stands in its place.On the outskirts of Rowde are the Caen Hill flight of locks of the Kennet and Avon Canal. The canal rises 237 feet by means of 29 locks, 16 of them in a straight line at Caen Hill. The Kennet and Avon Canal was constructed between 1794 and 1810 and served to link Devizes with Bristol and London. The canal fell into disuse after the coming of the railway but has been restored, and is now used for leisure purposes.The small hamlet of Rowde Hill, consisting of around 10 residences, lies around 1.3mi west of the village towards Sells Green and Melksham, at the junction of The Common and Berhills Lane (though this is not signposted).AmenitiesThe parish has a village hall and two schools: Rowde C of E Primary Academy and Rowdeford School which is a Special Needs school.
