All About Chippenham


In March 1984 my husband (NAH) and I married and moved to south-west England from Newcastle. We'd been aiming for Dorset (where NAH's father came from), but fell a little short of the mark. Instead we found ourselves in Corsham, then Chippenham from 2008 onwards. I felt Chippenham wasn't our real home and alternated between hankering after a life in Dorset and feeling homesick for the north-east, even though Birmingham is where I was born.

In 2007 distance carer responsibilities began to hit hard and we considered moving closer to our relatives, but in the end decided Chippenham is really home after all. In the first half of 2011 I wrote a series of articles under the ABC Wednesday banner and they've helped me to at last take pride in where I live. As Chippenham is one of the central themes to this blog, it makes sense for it to have its own dedicated page.

You'll find all of these posts and more - including a wry look at advertising and public planting - under the Chippenham label. I also write quite a bit about Wiltshire, the county in which Chippenham resides and you can find these under the Wiltshire label.

Chippenham also features on my photography blog, Sign of the Times.
