Corsham is a quiet, unspoilt town where peacocks wander freely around the streets! It owes its prosperity to the wool trade and quarrying of golden Bath stone, brought to life in the town's heritage centre.
Discover the wealth of beautiful and historic buildings including Corsham Court, 17th Century Flemish buildings, Lady Margaret Hungerford Almshouses, weavers cottages, old inns and the elegant Town Hall.
Pickwick, once an adjoining hamlet, gave its name to Moses Pickwick an abandoned baby, this name later being seen on a carrier's cart by Charles Dickens who used it for his Pickwick Papers.
Nearby is the village of Box from where stone was first quarried in the 8th Century. By the end of the 19th Century these were the most productive in the world. Brunel completed his railway from Bristol to London in 1841 and on the A4 the Western Classical Portal of his famous 2 mile Box Tunnel can be viewed. Some of his first timid travellers left the train before it entered the tunnel and rejoined it the other side!
