Dumb Post

Dumb Post is a small hamlet containing an 18th century inn of rubble stone with a tile roof. It has 15th century origins and was altered in the 19th century. It got its name because there was originally just a post for a sign to the hamlet with no name on it. It is said that the post was used to pin messages and mail for passing coaches and horsemen on their journeys to and from Malmesbury to Marlborough via Clacks Way There are also other rubble stone buildings with timber framing and red brick thatched roofs present in the hamlet.
