Marlborough is a market town on the Old Bath Road once the main road from London to Bath. The twice-weekly market is sited in High Street, one of the widest in England, lined on both sides with fine listed buildings of which the town has almost 300. There is evidence of local settlement from every period from the prehistoric to the present day. The town is home to the renowned Marlborough College. The River Kennet flows through the town
