Cirencester, the largest town in the Cotswolds, is a market town some 15 miles south east of Gloucester and some 13 miles north west of Swindon. The town lies on the River Churn, a tributary of the River Thames and is the hub of a network of roads. It is the home of the Royal Agricultural University, founded in 1840. An important Roman settlement known as Corinium, the town, with 240 acres enclosed by walls was second only to London in size.
