    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.
