Cricklade is a small town in north Wiltshire, on the River Thames, situated midway between Swindon and Cirencester. Cricklade was founded in the ninth century by the Saxons, and is one of thirty burhs (fortresses or fortified towns) built around Wessex by King Alfred. The Jubilee Clock stands outside The Vale Hotel in the High Street, erected in 1898 in honour of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee the preceding year. St. Sampsons Church dates back to the eleventh century, built on the remains of another Saxon church, of 890AD. St Mary's Church was founded nearly 1,000 years ago and its features include a 12th Century Chancel Arch and medieval preaching cross. Cricklade has a number of sports and leisure facilities including Cricklade Leisure Centre, Cricklade Cricket Club and Cricklade Youth Football Club. There is a large nature reserve, North Meadow, which preserves some 80% of Britain's wild Snake's Head Fritillaries in its 150 acres. A disused airfield called Blakehill was bought from the Ministry of Defence to form a second larger meadow of around 600 acres, opened to the public in 2005. Cricklade has numerous public houses; including The Vale, The Old Bear, The White Hart, The White Lion, and The Red Lion. There is a local museum in Calcutt Street, housed in a former Baptist chapel.
