The first town on the River Thames

Cricklade, the first town on the River Thames, is the southern gateway to Cotswold Water Park. It is steeped in tradition, and has over 100 listed buildings, mainly found on its attractive High Street. Cricklade is described as the best preserved example of a Saxon new town. Cricklade owes its existence to its geographical position – just to the east of the town is Ermine Way – a road originally built by the Romans to form a causeway across the flood plain linking Silchester to Gloucester.
