Corsham is a quiet, unspoilt town on the edge of the Cotswolds.
It owes its prosperity to the wool trade and, later, the quarrying of golden Bath stone, which was used to create many of the buildings along the historic High Street. In fact, according to architectural historian Nikolaus Pevsner, “Corsham has no match in Wiltshire for wealth of good houses.”
Among those “good houses” are Corsham Court, with its Capability Brown connections, and the Lady Margaret Hungerford Almshouses (both open to the public), weavers cottages, old inns and the elegant Town Hall, which was used as a Red Cross hospital during the Great War.
Corsham is also home to great independent shops, a Tuesday market, award-winning dining, The Pound Arts Centre and peacocks, the town’s noisiest residents, who roam the streets. And everything is surrounded by beautiful English countryside.
