Wiltshire is a rural county characterised by its high chalk downland and wide valleys. Salisbury Plain is noted for being the location of the Stonehenge and Avebury stone circles and other ancient landmarks, and as a training area for the British Army. The highest point in the county is the Tan Hill-Milk Hill ridge in the Pewsey Vale, just to the north of Salisbury Plain, at 295 m (968 ft) above sea level. The Marlborough Downs are part of the North Wessex Downs AONB. In the southeast of the county there is a small section of the New Forest.
