Melksham in pictures

I'm following up a huge batch of technical posts with a reminder of what a great place Melksham is to live in and to visit. Pictures here all taken during the first 10 days of May 2009, in Melksham.

Melksham - Oak leavesYoung leaves on the trees, on the footpath that runs behind Laburnum Drive, Beech Avenue and Larch Close. Ironically, there is no "Oak Road" in the areas!


Melksham HouseMelksham House, now the Cooper Avon Tires Sports and Social Club, is a magnificent old building in the heart of the town, with a long and interesting history


In the grounds of Melksham HouseStalls at the Melksham Food and Drink Festival in the grounds of Melksham House. With eating out experiences, local produce, cookery demonstrations and more, this special week provided Melksham with something a little out of the ordinary.


Flight EndSurprisingly, it's quite ordinary for us to see hot air balloons overhead, and to have them land in the field behind the Spa Houses on a calm spring and summer evening.


Melksham Spa HousesAnd, talking of the Spa Houses, here is one of them. They make a magnificent site on the outskirts of the town, and remind us of the days when Melksham was going to rival Bath with people coming to take the waters.


Melksham SuburbsThere days, it's a much more gentle / quieter town - with some very attractive modern housing and facilities, as well as the older stuff. Picture - just of Campion Drive


Conigre WalksAnd we even have our own nature reserve at Conigre Mead - running into the Riverside walk, again close to the town centre.


When we moved to Melksham in 1999, we really didn't know the place and it was something of a shot in the dark. Now we wouldn't want to leave.
