Corsham is a medieval town in North West Wiltshire. It is at the south-eastern extreme of the Cotswolds, between Bath and Chippenham. A market town within a large parish of around 13000 people, Corsham has grown rapidly since 2003.

Originally named Cosseha, there has been a settlement in Corsham since Anglo-Saxon times. Corsham Court has royal connections dating back centuries: King Ethelred (978-1017) kept house on the site of this old manor.

Corsham is said to have thrived on sheep and stone. From the 14th century until the wool industry moved to the north of the country in the 1800s, many Flemish weavers came to England and settled in the Cotswolds area, with a number making their home in Corsham. A row of 17th Century houses in the High Street is actually known as the ‘Flemish Cottages’. As for stone, Cotswold limestone has been used for building since Roman times. The stone quarried in and around Corsham then – as now - was the famous ‘Bath Stone’ and houses built from it can be seen in the High Street. In fact, Nikolaus Pevsner, the architectural historian, once wrote, “Corsham has no match in Wiltshire for wealth of good houses”.
