Sevenhampton, Wiltshire

Sevenhampton is a small village in Wiltshire, England, to the north-east of Swindon. It lies at the bottom of a valley, with fairly steep climbs out of the village in both directions.

Sevenhampton is the resting place of James Bond author Ian Fleming, whose grave is marked by an obelisk in the churchyard.

There is an outdoor activity centre at Roves Farm.

The village is not served by any public transport and is a two-mile walk from the nearest bus stop at South Marston.
