Answers

  1. Avebury. (Bonus Street: Green Street) (Dog's name: Up to you! We quite liked Sarsen and Roundabout...)
  2. Devizes, corner of Sheep Street. (Ducks newsagent) (We're not entirely sure, but points for either a Ford Prefect or Anglia)
  3. Marlborough High Street. (1960s) (St Peters Church)
  4. Roundway Park. (Builder: George Willy) (Swiss Cottage) - this was tricky! The House was altered in the 1700s by architect James Wyatt.
