Location - Trowbridge is the County Town of Wiltshire, and situated on the Biss in the west of the county, 8 miles (13 km) south east of the city of Bath and Somerset, from which it is separated by the Mendip Hills, which rise 3 miles (4.8 km) to the west. Bradford On Avon and Longleat Estate are also close by. The railway station is on the Wessex Main Line. Trowbridge has long been a market town and the Kennet & Avon Canal runs to the north of town and played an instrumental part in the town's development as it enabled coal to be transported from the Somerset Coalfield and so marked the advent of steam-powered manufacturing in woollen cloth mills.
The town was foremost producer of this mainstay of contemporary clothing and blankets in south west England in the late 18th and early 19th centuries by which time it held the nickname "The Manchester of the West"

Transport - The Station offers two platforms and these are on the Wessex mainline between Bradford on Avon and Westbury. Services from Trowbridge join the Great Western Main Line at Bath / Chippenham. Between Trowbridge / Chippenham the line is a single track with limited services. Services from Trowbridge join the Reading to Taunton line at Westbury. Junction 18 of the M4 is about 18 miles (29 km) and the same distance from junction 17 (Chippenham). The A361 runs through the town connecting it to Swindon to the north-east and Barnstaple to the south-west, while the north-south A350 primary route to Poole runs close to the town.
The nearest airport is Bristol Airport which is 30 miles (48 km) west.
