SITUATION

Corston is a small village located midway between the M4 and the historical town of Malmesbury, which is officially recognised as England's oldest borough. Situated on the edge of the Cotswolds, surrounded by two branches of the River Avon, it boasts buildings of golden Cotswold stone and beautiful river walks. Famous for its ancient Abbey and elaborate 15th century Market Cross, the town may well have history round every corner but is also bursting with life, enjoying excellent independent shops, a Waitrose, charming cosy pubs, friendly cafes, regular farmers' markets and a busy local events schedule. The establishment of the Dyson design and development headquarters on the edge of the town means that Malmesbury is now a centre for technical innovation, allowing the town to truly describe itself as both ancient and modern. Malmesbury is five miles north of the M4 (Junction 17) so within easy commuting distance of Bristol, Bath and Swindon. London is approximately 1 hours away by car or train.

DIRECTIONS
