Picture of Swindon Town HallThis is the old Town Hall of Swindon at Regent Circus. It now houses an arts & dance school as well as the library. Regent Street with Swindon's main shopping precinct begins at this square (behind of from where the picture was taken). Under the trees you can just make out a war memorial.

The path below is the entrance to The Lawn, a 50 acre park at the former home of the Goddard family. The house had to be demolished in 1952 after the last member of the Goddard family had died in 1927 and the house had deteriorated after the war. The park has two lakes and panoramic views of Swindon and the Marlborough Downs

Picture of the old railtrack in Swindon Left the disused railtrack parallel to the M4 motorway, now a popular footpath leading from Old Town to West Swindon. Also popular with joggers, I use it for my daily morning run.
