A message from the Malmesbury Flood Group

Due to very heavy rain over the past few days, the Malmesbury Flood Group are alert and monitoring the situation in the town.

The Sluice gates are fully open at Cowbridge.  

Many roads are already flooded and the Flood Group advise that members of the public stay away from the river and the flood water.
The Flood group will keep us up to date with any new information.


Local stories in and around the Malmesbury area to keep you up-to-date.


A wonderful place to visit with a wealth of attractions right on the doorstep.


Malmesbury is a beautiful town to visit in its own right and attractions include the jewel in our crown being Malmesbury Abbey, the fabulous Abbey House Gardens, and Malmesbury’s 15th century Market Cross.

For more than two and a half millennia successive generations have populated this hilltop, which forms the centre of the community we now call Malmesbury.
