Chippenham – Sunday 17th September 2017

Chippenham is a small market town in Wiltshire.  This was just a quick visit and we didn’t spend much time in the town but we did manage to pop into the Waterstones to take some photos.

This store, like the one in Salisbury (yet to be visited as part of this quest, but one I frequently visit with my Mum) has a fish tank in the children’s department!

Near to Chippenham is the village of Lacock which is mostly owned by the National Trust.  It is very picturesque and has been the set of many films and TV productions including the 1995 BBC adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice, several of the Harry Potter films, Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford and The Woman in Black, based on the book by Susan Hill.  It is very worth a visit, although it does get rather busy at weekends.
