Visit Trowbridge and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Trowbridge, Wiltshire, is the administrative centre of Wiltshire. “It flourishith by drapery”, remarked Leland in the 16th century. In those days there was a castle here, and Fore Street still follows the curves of the old ditch and rampart. The castle has disappeared as have the cloth mills from which this attractive stone town grew rich by weaving.
In The Parade is a magnificent series of stone 18th-century. merchants' houses, and there are others in Fore Street and Roundstone Street.
The Church of St James is splendid with a fine spire. It was much restored in Victorian times. George Crabbe, the poet, was rector here from 1814 to 1832. There is a monument to his memory by E. H. Baily, and another one in the churchyard to Thomas Helliker, who was thought to be the leader of riots which broke out with the coming of the power loom and was executed in 1803, aged only 19.
