Mere, Wiltshire

Mere is a large village in Wiltshire, England, having many interesting features. Also, it has a lot of shops, though the number has halved since a bypass was opened in about 1975.

From the Village Square, and within earshot of the Chiming Village Clock, it's possible to glimpse a high verdant carpet between the ancient grey walls of the shops and houses. This is the extreme Southwestern tip of Salisbury Plain.

Again from the Village Square, it is impossible to miss noticing the steep slope of Castle Hill rising from the northwestern side of Mere.

Mere is also a commune in the Yvelines département in France.
