The beautiful market town of Chippenham is located in northwest Wiltshire and approximately 86 miles from our capital city of London. Established originally before Roman times on a crossing of the Stunning River Avon, Chippenham has now grown to become a large commuter town with a population of around 45,620 people. Lying between Salisbury Plain to the southeast and Marlborough Downs to the east, Chippenham not only has the river Avon to draw in the tourists but the stunning scenery of the surrounding countryside and beautiful villages of Lacock, Biddestone and Castle Combe.
The shopping arcades in Chippenham town centre are thriving and the stores teaming with locals and visitors who come to not only take full advantage of the retail outlets, admire the old Tudor buildings, stroll by the river, and play in the parks but to visit the surrounding villages as well. With all the extra revenue coming into the town they are certainly in need of professional Accountants Chippenham to make sure all the extra income is properly recorded, finances checked and sound investments made. The families that live in Chippenham and surrounding villages enjoy a real community spirit and get together to celebrate every year at the Chippenham Folk Festival.
Another annual festival held in Chippenham is especially for the legendary American Rock and Roll star Eddie Cochran who tragically died in a car accident on the 17th of April 1960, in Chippenham on his way back to London.
