Melksham, with its good road network, makes an ideal touring centre for the South West. There is an excellent range of accommodation in the area, ranging from bed and breakfast in private homes to country house hotels, farmhouse accommodation and self-catering. The town of Melksham developed at a ford across the River Avon. The name is presumed to derive from MEOLC, the Old English for milk and from HAM, a village. It was a royal estate at the time of the Norman Conquest. In the Domesday (Doomsday) Book, Melksham was described as having 8 mills, 130 acres of water meadows and 8 leagues of pasture in length and breadth. There were 19 ploughmen, 189 landholders and 35 serfs making up a population of several hundred. Adjoining the farmland was the medieval forest of Melksham which, combined with Chippenham Forest, covered 33 square miles. The forest was administered by the Constable of Devizes Castle, it ran from Calne in the east to Semington in the west.
During the early 13th Century, King John visited Melksham Forest several times in order to enjoy his favourite sport of hunting. In 1220 oaks from the forest were used in the choir stalls of the new Cathedral at Salisbury. Melksham had a connection with the Cathedral, as part of the parish was endowed to support the Canons of the Cathedral. In 1257 the main part of the manor was given by Henry III to the Abbey of Amesbury and from henceforth cattle, cheeses and fleeces from Melksham were sent across the plain until the dissolution of Amesbury Abbey in 1539.
In 1219 Melksham was considered important enough to be granted a Charter to hold a market every Friday and a fair on Michaelmas Day. Later the market was transferred to a Tuesday, and in 1491 the Prioress of Amesbury obtained a Charter for a two day fair in July. In the late 19th Century farm produce was sold on the first day of the fair, horses were tethered down King Street and in the Market Place as far down as Bank Street. On the second day a fun fair was held, unfortunately the fair was wound up by the Home Secretary in 1910. The markets continued to be held on alternate Tuesdays with Trowbridge but were ended by the advent of the Second World War. Recently there has been a move to re-establish the street market.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
