are a few photographs of Chippenham Wiltshire. Some might say the capital
of England - or at least Wessex - at one stage. Alfred the Great spent
considerable time at Chippenham. It was his administrative home and his
court was stationed here. It was also here that the Battle of Chippenham
took place on Twelfth Night 878 which resulted in defeat for Alfred and
his exile into the marshes of Athelney.
This is the high
River Avon as it passes through Chippenham. Originating in the Bristol
Channel - it meanders through Bath before reaching here.
Parish Church of St Andrew of Chippenham. It has some fine stained glass
windows and is well worth a visit if you are in the vicinity.
you do decide to visit - Opening times. If my memory serves me well, it
it also open at noon during the week for silent prayer.
