    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.
