    7 Quirky Facts About Corsham

    1. What the Dickens?!?
      Corsham was the inspiration for Charles Dicken’s Pickwick Papers. In Dickens’ day, Pickwick was an adjoining hamlet but is now part of Corsham, Dickens saw the name of Pickwick on the side of a cart being driven through Corsham.
    2. Wool & Stone
      Corsham was essentially built from wool and stone, they were the two trades that drove the town’s prosperity. The Flemish Houses were homes used by a group of Flemish weavers who came to Corsham to escape religious persecution back in their homeland. The area was also rich in the famous Bath stone, which was quarried in the area and can be seen in many of the historic buildings and homes around the town.
    3. Boxed In
      The nearby village of Box was a site used for quarrying Bath stone as far back as the 8th century. It is also a key landmark on Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s great London to Bath railway. Brunel oversaw much of the work along the route personally, including the Box tunnel which is over 2 miles long.
    4. Lil Names
      This area of Wiltshire has some wonderfully named villages and hamlets including; Box, Chapel Knapp, Pickwick, Easton, Weston, Thingley and Lacock.
    5. Corsham’s King
      Corsham (for a while known as “Corsham Regis”) was the winter palace and home of King Aethelred, grandson of Alfred the Great and the first King of England. Yep, take that London!
      The manor of Corsham remained in royal ownership for centuries and good old Henry the VIII gave the manor to Catherine of Aragon, until she fell out of favour and then regifted it to Katherine Parr. One local school still uses the name Corsham Regis.
    6. Capability & Beau
      Corsham Court is a grand stately home originally built by Thomas ‘Customer’ Smythe in 1582. In 1747 Sir Paul Methuen an influential diplomat managed to take ownership of the house (which was transferred into his name by the Crown) and the grounds landscaped by Capability Brown and the house rebuilt by Beau Nash the celebrated dandy, party king and self-appointed ‘Master of Ceremonies’ for both Bath and Tunbridge Wells. The house is still owned by the Methuen family.
    7. Burlington Bunker
      A huge bunker lies 130ft under Corsham, originally built as a munitions store during WWII and later a nuclear bunker. The site covered 35 hectares or 7,000,000 square feet. In the event of a nuclear attack, “Site 3” (although we prefer the nattier name of “Burlington Bunker”) would have been used to house the Prime Minister, the cabinet, military chiefs, families, and an army of civil servants and support personnel. The blast-proof bunker was a whopping 1 km long with over 60 miles of roads, could hold up to 4,000 people and remain completely self-sufficient for 4 months.
