Melksham Information

Melksham is a friendly old market town with a population of around 24000, situated in the triangle between Bath, Swindon and Salisbury. Places of Interest are shown on the Town Council's web site, and there's plenty of other interesting places close by such as Lacock, Corsham and Devizes - all reachable by bus, and Chippenham, Trowbridge and Westbury reachable by train. Plenty more pictures of Melksham, with links and maps, on my "work" website.

Melksham was going to be a Spa town to rival Bath, and these three grand buildings were built in 1813 as lodging houses for the clientelle coming to partake of the waters; a ballroom (still standing) and well head cottage were also built, but the scheme didn't take off and the houses were sold off a few years after the scheme was instigated.
