It may be a small, modest
town just a few miles from Bath but Corsham
has two spectacular claims to fame.
The first is 14th century Hazelbury Manor and its magnificent landscaped gardens.
The second is the Elizabethan Corsham Court containing an eclectic collection of famous paintings.
While its main rooms were furnished by Robert Adam and Chippendale, its splendid grounds were laid out by Capability Brown and Humphrey Repton.
One of its finest treasures is an 18th century bathhouse.
