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, thus Greater Bromham is geographically very extensive.
The centre of the village is dominated by the Parish Church of St. Nicholas with its fine landmark spire. Bromham Methodist Church, our Primary School, the Social Centre, Post Office, shops and the Greyhound Inn are in close proximity. The greater village boasts a host of small businesses
. Mark Wilkinson Furniture, manufacturers of bespoke kitchens, is a major employer.
The village is surrounded by extensive acreage of lower greensand
, which supports a market gardening industry run by local growers, who provide excellent produce for sale within the locality, in the nearby market towns, farmers' markets and supermarkets. The legendary Bromham Carrots are renowned for their sweetness and flavour and are much sought after.
Bromham is a village with a supportive community spirit. Those of us who live here are fortunate indeed.
