Bromham is a village and civil parish in the English county of Wiltshire with a population of around 1,800.
Bromham lies about 4 miles (6½ km) northwest of Devizes and 4 miles east of Melksham in the Kennet local government district between the A342 Chippenham to Devizes and the A3102 Calne to Melksham roads. Beacon Hill and Oliver's Castle provide a scenic backdrop on the eastern edge of the Parish with the woodlands of Spye Park Estate marking the western fringe.
Besides the main village of Bromham, there are five other settlements in the parish: St. Edith's Marsh, Westbrook, Hawkstreet, Netherstreet and Chittoe. These are essentially small villages and hamlets all within 3 miles (5 km) of the main village centre, so Greater Bromham is geographically extensive.
Despite the spread Bromham is a village with a supportive community spirit, with many village activities.
Bromham is set in lovely countryside within easy reach of some of the most iconic sites England has to offer. From the pre-historic Ridgeway path and hill forts through the famous Wiltshire White Horses to the canals and railways of the Industrial Revolution, a large slice of history is in easy reach.
There are some excellent walks around the village and its surroundings, detailed in a booklet developed by the Bromham Footpaths Group. This is a band of dedicated walkers who meet every Thursday morning and spend a couple of hours exploring and re-visiting our byways and footpaths before returning to a local hostelry for tales of derring-do!
These are just some of the historic sites within easy walking or cycling distance of the village.
