  Located just a few miles from Bath, Trowbridge is the administrative centre of Wiltshire.

In the Middle Ages its prosperity was based on the textile industry after Flemish immigrants brought their weaving skills to Wiltshire.

The town has many fine Georgian houses and a number of 19th century mills.

Trowbridge Museum has displays on the town’s important industrial heritage.
