Chippenham is a market town in Wiltshire, in the west of England, which the river Avon runs through. More than 40,000 people live in Chippenham, and its location between Bath and Swindon, make it ideal for commuters.
The town has a mixture of historic properties and new developments. It is believed Chippenham was established in the Roman period and later on was used as a hunting lodge by King Alfred. Indeed many buildings make reference to this throwback, including King Alfred's Hunting Lodge primary school.
Visitors can delve further into Chippenham's history by visiting the Grade II listed Chippenham Museum and Heritage Centre which was built in the 18th century.
The town hosts many celebrations including an annual pancake tossing race which takes place on the high street on Shrove Tuesday, and there is also a 50s rock festival in April and an annual beer festival.
