Trowbridge is the county town of Wiltshire, and we hope that our website will be of interest to both residents and visitors alike. You can find out what’s going on around the town, or learn more about how your town council works for you. To see how Trowbridge as a community is made up, please click this link.
The town has a rich history, from being one of the 23 ‘Magna Carta’ towns, through to its involvement as a prominent mill town, eventually producing cloth which was sought after across the world. It is also the birthplace of Isaac Pitman, inventor of the world-famous shorthand system, and in the 1940s, contributed to the war effort as a location for building the legendary Spitfire fighter. Trowbridge is also the ideal location for exploring Wiltshire, due to its central position within the county, and with Bath and Bristol easily reached.
Our Town Council was one of the first in the West of England to declare a Climate Emergency in September 2019, and our work continues to make Trowbridge a safe environment: you can find out more here.
