Showing the old "Buttersross". The original Buttercross was erected about 1570 and stood at the centre of the Shambles. It was used for the sale of meat and dairy products. In 1889, Mr E.C. Lowndes bought the Buttercross for 6 and re-erected it as a gazebo in the kitchen garden of the Castle Combe Manor House, where it subsequently fell into disrepair. The structure was salvaged and re-erected here in 1995 by the Chippenham Civic Society. (Source Wikipedia)
