Corsham owes much of its charm to the famous Bath stone, whose honeyed hues positively glow in the Wiltshire sunshine. If you are after a more dramatic setting, rain imparts a greyer tone to the stone, imbuing the town with a darker mood.

Highlights of the town include: the Town Hall, a spacious building with five open arches, built in 1793; the 17th century alms houses, built by Lady Margaret Hungerford in 1648; the terraced row of 17th century Flemish weavers' cottages, with traces of Flemish influence and a link to sheep farming in the nearby Cotswolds; St Bartholomew's Church; the peacocks who live at Corsham Court and wander around the town.

Architectural historian Nicholas Pevsner (1902-1983) wrote that "Corsham has no match in Wiltshire for wealth of good houses".

Corsham is not only a heritage site but also a bustling market town, and as such can provide the perfect backdrop to any production, regardless of era or genre.
