The local area
The settlement that is now Chippenham was formed on a crossing of the River Avon, and is thought to have existed before Roman times. The railways arrived in 1841, which brought more growth to the town and began its tradition as a commuter town. Chippenham has plenty of modern amenities, but a large proportion of its inhabitants work in places such as Bristol and Swindon.
Both of these larger neighbours can be reached in around half an hour by car, while it’s a similar journey to Bristol by train. Rail services to Swindon take half the amount of time, while it’s around an hour and 15 minutes to get to London. The M4 motorway passes to the north of Chippenham, providing access to Bristol and South Wales in the west, and Reading and London to the east. It’s also fairly straight forward getting to other local towns such as Salisbury and Trowbridge.
There are plenty of good schools in Chippenham for families with children to consider, including St. Mary’s, Queen’s Crescent and Frogwell at primary level. Older children have the choice of three secondary schools, Hardenhuish School, Sheldon School and Abbeyfield School on Stanley Lane, which has specialist status as a Business and Enterprise College. For higher education, the nearest university is the Bath campus at Claverton Down, just over ten miles west of Chippenham.
