Old Town - Elevated on a hilltop, it has an individual character, with views across Wiltshire countryside and is a most sought after residential location.

A choice of wine bars, restaurants and street cafes are a short walk, healthcare is met by locally by Old Town Surgery or, within two and a half miles, the new Great Western Hospital. Lawn Woods/Park and Town Gardens (with aviary, concert bowl, rose garden and cafe) provide peace and a relaxing environment. Banks varied specialist shops and a comprehensive supermarket complete Old Towns' self-contained character.
