The Neeld has played several different roles in the heart of the Chippenham community, including a Cheese Market and a WW1 Hospital. Following a refurbishment project in 2015, The Neeld is a thriving Community and Arts Centre with an exciting programme of professional shows and local groups’ activities. The Town Hall was opened in 1834 and remains the civic heart of the town and home of Chippenham Town Council.
