Cricklade is the first town downstream on the River Thames. The town was founded by the Anglo-Saxons in the 9th century at the point where the Roman Ermin Way crosses the River Thames. It is one of the thirty burhs (fortified towns) recorded in the Burghal Hidage document, which describes a system of fortresses and fortified towns built around Wessex by King Alfred. The fortifications have been extensively excavated in several places on all four of its sides.
