Local Information

Trowbridge is the county town of Wiltshire, England, on the River Biss in the west of the county, 8 miles (13km) south east of Bath, Somerset, from which it is separated by the Mendip Hills, which rise 3 miles (4.8km) to the west. The town is also 38 miles (61km) south of Gloucester and 20 miles (32km) south east of Bristol.

Long a market town, the Kennet and Avon canal to the north of Trowbridge has played an instrumental part in the town's development as it allowed coal to be transported from the Somerset Coalfield and so marked the advent of steam-powered manufacturing in woollen cloth mills. The town was foremost producer of this mainstay of contemporary clothing and blankets in south west England in the late 18th and early 19th centuries by which time it held the nickname "The Manchester of the West".
