Ancient Malmesbury

Malmesbury, once considered the most defendable town in Britain due to its position on a flat topped hillside, it is also allegedly England’s first capital. Malmesbury Abbey is still standing to this day, although at around one third of its original size and is a thriving community church with a window commemorating the town’s flying monk. A couple of minutes walk takes you to the privately owned Malmesbury House and Gardens where you can explore the 5 acres of beautiful gardens with walls and gardens that have fragments of 12th century carved stone re-used from the abbey.
