corsham medieval village

Poldark in Corsham, Wiltshire

Who knew that a medieval town in Wiltshire was doubling for an 18th century Cornish village in the new Poldark series. I certainly didn’t when I stumbled across Corsham. Recently, travelling through the Cotswolds to Avebury I noticed a sign for a ‘medieval town’ and decided to stop and take a look around… I was very glad that I did.

Whilst walking around, I discovered there was a ‘Poldark exhibition’ on at the Town Hall, a small display of photos from the filming of Poldark. Corsham had also featured in the newspaper, the ‘Daily Mail’ that day and there was a copy on display.

Poldark brings back happy memories for me from my childhood, as I enjoyed watching it way back in the 1970’s and its been great that we’ve now got a new Poldark series, with the gorgeous and dashing Aidan Turner playing Ross Poldark. Samantha x
