Salisbury is a cathedral city in Wiltshire, 20 miles from Southampton, near the edge of Salisbury Plain. Stonehenge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site is 8 miles northwest of Salisbury.
The name Salisbury was first recorded around the year 900 as Searoburg. 2 miles north of modern Salisbury is the site of Old Sarum, which is the oldest settlement of Salisbury. There are indications of a prehistoric settlement from as early as 3000 BC.
Salisbury Cathedral was formerly north of the city at Old Sarum. The cathedral relocated in 1220 after an initial petition to the pope in 1217. This led to the formation of New Sarum and the fall into disrepair of the old site. New Sarum was made a city by a charter from King Henry III in 1227 and by the 14th century was the largest settlement in Wiltshire.
A charter market is held on Tuesdays and Saturdays and these have been held regularly since 1227. Shopping centres in the city include The Old George Mall, The Maltings, Winchester Street and the Crosskeys precinct. The largest employer for the area is the Salisbury District Hospital. From 1833 to mid 1980s the Salisbury Gas Light & Coke Company, who ran the city’s gasworks, was a major employer for the area until its demolition.
In the 18th century Salisbury was an important centre for music. James Harris, a friend of Handel, directed concerts at the Assembly Rooms for nearly 50 years up to his death in 1780. An annual St George’s Day pageant, the origins of which are claimed to go back to the 13th century is held every year.
The Salisbury annual International Arts Festival, started in 1973, is held in late May to early June. It provides a program of theatre, live music, dance, sculpture, street performances and art exhibitions.
Salisbury also has a museum in the King’s House opposite the west side of the cathedral.
Some of the pests we deal with:
|Rats||You may see rats during daylight hours but they prefer to operate at night.|
|Ants||Worker ants will frequently enter dwellings foraging for food, particularly sweet substances.|
|Cockroaches||Cockroaches are mainly nocturnal so they are more likely to be seen at night.|
|Squirrels||The most common complaint about Squirrels is when they take residence in a loft space.|
|Mice||You may see, hear or smell a mouse problem or see other evidence such as burrowing in insulation or soil.|
|Wasps||Wasps are aggressive and will sting readily if they think the nest is in danger.|
