Wiltshire, in South West England, borders the counties of Dorset, Somerset, Hampshire, Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire. Wiltshire consists of two unitary authority areas, Wiltshire and Swindon, governed respectively by Wiltshire Council and Swindon Borough Council. Wiltshire Council is based at Trowbridge.
Wiltshire is notable for its pre-Roman archaeology. Stonehenge and Avebury are perhaps the most famous Neolithic sites in the UK. Around 1800 the Kennet and Avon Canal was built through Wiltshire providing a route for transporting cargoes from Bristol to London until the development of the Great Western Railway.
The Borough of Swindon is centred on the town of Swindon. Formed in 1974 as the Thamesdown district of Wiltshire, from former areas of the municipal borough of Swindon and Highworth Rural District), it only adopted the name Swindon as recently as April 1997.
Salisbury is a cathedral city located in the south-east of Wiltshire, at the edge of Salisbury Plain. It sits at the confluence of five rivers: the Nadder, Ebble, Wylye, Bourne and Avon. Salisbury Plain is famous as the location of the Stonehenge stone circle and other ancient landmarks and as the main training area in the UK of the British Army. The city of Salisbury is notable for its medieval cathedral.
Main roads through Wiltshire include the A4 and the M4 motorway / M4 Corridor. Its eastern end in particular is home to a large number of businesses, particularly in Berkshire, Swindon and the Thames Valley. The Information Economy of the UK is most heavily concentrated in London and the M4 corridor. For this reason this part of the M4 Corridor is sometimes described as England's Silicon Valley.
The Wiltshire economy benefits from the "M4 corridor effect", which attracts business, and the attractiveness of its countryside, towns and villages. Swindon, in the far north of the county is home to national and international corporations such as Honda, Intel, Motorola, Alcatel-Lucent, Becton-Dickinson, WHSmith, Early Learning Centre and Nationwide, with Dyson located in nearby Malmesbury.
As with many motorways, companies are attracted to the location because of the excellent communication networks, this is true of the M4 especially because of the motorway's proximity to London and Heathrow Airport which is also alongside the M4.
The county is represented in the Football League by Swindon Town, who play at the County Ground stadium near Swindon town centre.
