The name of Royal Wootton Bassett is instantly recognisable across the world. Its wide High Street, typical of many West Country market towns, regularly played host to the military over a five-year period. 'Bassett', however, as it is known locally, has a rich architectural history stretching back many centuries. Small, utilitarian cottages once rubbed shoulders with large grandiose houses and surprisingly, in spite of all the recent development, still remain. Through the reproduction of many old photographs, readers are invited to take a walk down Coxstalls or Buthay, visit Lawn Farm, stand under the famous Town Hall or take a train from the once thriving station to Swindon, learning something of the town's colourful characters along the way. Discover Royal Wootton Bassett's history in this wonderfully illustrated book compiled by well-known author and archaeologist Bob Clarke.
