Melksham Town Information

Once an important weaving town on the banks of the River Avon, Melksham’s finest feature is the National Trust’s splendid Great Chalfield Manor.

Dating to the late 15th century, it boasts a gatehouse, moat, great hall and magnificent oriel windows.

It was restored and its gardens replanted in the last century by Major R. Fuller.
