Chippenham is one of the West Country's most dynamic market towns with a population of over 40,000. The combination of the old and the new, the historic architectural gems, modern shopping centres and nearness to some of the country's greatest houses and historic villages, makes this town midway between Bath and Swindon an ideal location for living, working and visiting.


Chippenham is set on a prominent crossing of the River Avon and lies between the Malborough Downs to the East, the Cotswolds to the North and West and Salisbury Plain to the South. Surrounding the town are a number of stone-built villages, including Lacock (National Trust), Biddestone and Castle Combe. The great house and art treasures of Longleat, Bowood, Lacock Abbey, Sheldon Manor and Corsham Court are within easy reach.
