• Snowdrop in spring Snowdrops
    These perfect little flowers herald the beginning of spring — it won't be long before the clocks go forward! As beautiful and widespread as they are, they're not native to the UK and it isn't known who introduced them here, or when.

  • Corsley ManorCorsley Manor
    Manor Farm, Corsley is a fine example of a grade II* Elizabethan manor house. In 1539, the manor of Corsley was granted to Edward Seymour who leased it to his steward, John Thynne. Eventually, Thynne was granted the manor and lived at the present Manor Farm from 1563 to 1568 whilst building Longleat House. The Manor celebrated it's 450th birthday in 2013 with a lavish luncheon for all the villagers.

  • St Margaret's Church, Corsley St Margaret's Church
    Originally named St. James's Chapel and built before the thirteenth century, it was changed to St. Margaret of Antioch's Church in 1786. By 1830 the original church was in a very poor state of repair and too small for the parish. A new church was designed by John Leachman and whilst the re-building was in progress, services were held in John Ball's malthouse. The new church consisted of just a nave and tower — there's no chancel. Inside, the pulpit survives from the old church and dates from c1700.
