Trowbridge

Trowbridge /ˈtroʊbrɪdʒ/ is the county town of Wiltshire, England on the Biss in the west of the county, 8 miles (13 km) south east of Bath, Somerset, from which is it separated by the Mendip Hills which rise 3 miles (4.8 km) to the west.Trowbridge has a railway station on the Wessex Main Line. On 5 September 1848, the first train steamed through as the Wilts, Somerset and Weymouth Railway was established. Long a market town, the Kennet and Avon canal runs to the north of Trowbridge and played an instrumental part in the town's development as it enabled coal to be transported from the Somerset Coalfield and so marked the advent of steam-powered manufacturing in woollen cloth mills.
