Marlborough, Wiltshire, England



Marlborough in Wiltshire is quite an extraordinary market town.  It has a wealth of history which is reflected in its architecture - almost every building in its High Street is unique.  It is also beautiful - a very enjoyable place to go for a walk, along one side of the High Street and then along the other and following the paths that go through parks and along the River Kennet.  The only negative point has got to the be ever present invasive traffic which is not only noisey but gets in the way when trying to take photographs!

There are a number of churches and also one church that is 'redundant' which is now open daily to welcome visitors tempted in by a cafe and craft shops.  It is now looked after by the St. Peter and St. Paul Trust.  Use the links above to see our photographs of these churches individually.

Many of Marlborough's buildings are listed.  We have put links under some photographs to see details about its listing at the  British Listed Buildings  website.  Either follow the link for 'Search' and type in Marlborough or follow the 'Map' link and zoom in (this is our favoured option).  Just one point - we do not know if buildings in the High Street have changed their numbers at some point, but this website does appear to have a few different numbers than are currently assigned to buildings.

Close to Marlborough is Savernake Forest - an ancient woodland.  It is well managed and has plenty of allotted parking spots for visitors.  The Wiltshire Collections link above has more information about Savernake as recorded by John Aubrey in the 1660s and updated by John Jackson in the 1860s.

More information about Marlborough can be found at the  Wiltshire Online Parish Clerks  website.

Most of our photographs below are of the High Street - the 'High Street' link above has photographs of individual buildings but the more general views are on this page.
