Welcome to Wiltshire's Townpage

Bradford-On-Avon - Some five miles east of Bath. Old market town with a remarkable Saxon church the only complete example in the country. Very fine 14th century tithe-barn, and many other ancient buildings. Barton was once a settlement of Dutch weavers. Good fishing. Formely a flourishing wool centre.

Calne - Between Bath and Marlborough. Renowned for its Wiltshire bacon industry. Grew out of trade in Irish pigs being driven to market in London. Some fifty nobles assembled in an Anglo-Saxon parliament were killed here by the collapsing of a building in 978. Nearby is Bowood House with grounds landscaped by Capability Brown. Joseph Priestly discovered oxygen at the house in 1774.

Corsham - A north Wiltshire town at the foot of the Cotswolds, bustling with activity yet dating back to Saxon times. Buildings constructed from the locally quarried cream coloured Bath stone make for an attractive town centre, and include weavers' cottages and almshouses. Near the town is the eastern end of Box Tunnel the famous railway tunnel designed by Isambard Kingdon Brunel for the Great Western Railway.

Marlborough - A picturesque and historic town with wide market place and an important College, originally founded for the education of the sons of clergy. This occupies the site of a Castle built in the reign of Henry I and a Royal Residence in the time of Henry III. There is Roman sculpture of the goddess, Fortuna, in St. Mary's Church. Nearby attractions include Saversnake Forst to south and beyond it the Crofton Steam Engines on the Kennet and Avon Canal. To west of town are Avebury and Silbury Hill, two of our greatest prehistoric monuments.

Pewsey - Village or very small town on the northern edge of Salisbury Plain, and looking across to the Marlborough Downs. Shops with thatched rooves, a small statue of King Alfred (once the owner of Pewsey) and on the hill behind a carved white horse make this a charming place. The river Avon passes through, while just on the northern edge is a quay on the Kennet and Avon canal which was built through the Vale of Pewsey. Nearby is Alton Barnes which ?recieves' some of the most extraordinary crop circles each summer.

Warminster - Town on the western edge of Salisbury Plain, and one of the army centres for artillery training. There is a Weapons Museum here.
