Netheravon is in the county of Wiltshire in the south west of England. It is 5 miles NW of Amesbury and about 4 miles from the world famous monument of Stonehenge. It is lucky in that it still has a local pub, shop, Post Office, hairdressers and garage. One feature that stands out is the local brewer who occupies the Old Mill right next to the beautiful River Avon.
