 The Village

Christian Malford grew up on the high ground close to a ford over the River Avon. In saxon times it was known as Christmal-ford; the ford near Christ's Cross. Christian Malford is registered in the Domesday Book (1068). However, finds from the Mesolithic Period near the river indicate much earlier occupation of the land.

A small village which lies on the B4069, just south of the M4, about 9 kms from Chippenham and13 kms from Wootton Bassett. A rural community, with a population of 701, it is set in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside by the River Avon.

Christian Malford is extremely well served with a 13th Century Church, an excellent Primary School, Village Shop & Post Office, Village Hall, Recreation Ground complete with its Pavillion and a Public House (The Rising Sun Inn).

The Village fully supports its amenities and has a number of thriving Organisations and Clubs which add to the quality of life of the community.

However, its greatest strength is its people; it is a genuinely friendly village, extremely supportive with an excellent community spirit.
