Around Cricklade, Wiltshire, England



The Saxon town of Cricklade lies to the north west of Wiltshire, close to the Cotswolds.  It's main road through - High Street- is full of character and history and many of it's buildings are listed.  It is so nice to see a town with independant shops and we've noticed it does seem to have more than its fair share of pubs!  Newer housing has been built alongside so there is now a mix of the old and new.

We have driven through Cricklade many times but, oh, how difficult it is to actually stop there if you are driving and want to visit the shops.  There never seems to any parking spaces along the High Street.  Last time we went there we noticed a car park had been upgraded (it may have been there before but we didn't know about it) and although we had to drive round it a few times we did at least find somewhere to park in the end.  Such are the constraints of towns built before motor cars were invented!

Most of the photographs below were taken on a walk along one side of the High Street, crossing over and back along the other side (with a diversion to St. Sampsons).  We went there to take photographs of the war memorial, so that is where our walk begins.  We didn't take too many photographs because it was quite dull that day and everything looks better in the sunshine, so thought we'd go back another time.  However, at time of writing this (November 2015), it's been eight and a half years since that visit and we still haven't managed to get back.  Terrible considering we only live a few miles away!

Information about Cricklade can be found at the excellent  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.
