Exploring SE England

Jump to last reply

I'm headed to Salisbury UK on June 27 to explore the area. I have ancestors who came from the area hundreds of years ago. One village I particularly want to visit is Cerne Abbas, where many of my ancestors came from. I have only 3 days to explore. I love history, especially from around the middle ages. Any suggestions on what I might seek out while I'm there? Any other towns/villages I should stay overnight other than Salisbury? I'm prepared to rent a car once I get there.
I've read "Sarum" & "London" by Montgomery, also all of Thomas Hardy's books. Any other books you might recommend? Thanks!
