As a little girl I remember visiting Auntie Alice and Uncle Bill Rowe. They lived in Vine Cottage just down from the SSW Army Camp. Dad was stationed there after the Second World War, that's where he met my mother Margaret Ada Rowe. We didn't vist much as dad came from Whickham, Co Durham. It must have been around the time of the death of her father Francis William Rowe, he died in 1965 in Salisbury Infirmary. My brother and I were playing ball in Vine Cottage's garden, throwing the ball near the shed where our cousin Alexander Peter George Rowe was fixing his bike, he must have been about 17 at the time. Also, I remember my dad going to a white pub a few minutes away, it might have been called the Dog and Gun (I'm not sure). It was just yesterday I had a chance to visit Amesbury, Salisbury and Stonehenge. Such happy memories...

RE: Rowes of Netheravon.

You are correct, the pub was one of two in the village. The Dog and Gun is still there but the Fox and Hounds in the High Street is now a private dwelling.
