Wiltshire Reports

Purton, Wiltshire

Review of Purton by gillian leighburn on February 8th, 2007
Purton is a small village on the outskirts of swindon. It is ideal for commuters as it is near the m4. The locals are friendly and there are various community events. It is also steeped in roman history with many ghosts being reported in the older buildings.Which brings me to "The Ghost Train" public house which has just re-opened under new management. Locals can tell of many ghosts that haunt the pub. Hopefully in the future they will have ghost searching sessions. I work in Purton and during the summer months the surrounding countryside is a joy to behold. The Ghost Train also has a large garden with childrens play area and b-b-q which is ideal for families to enjoy during the summer months. See you there
