Cricklade has an attractive High Street having several notable buildings, Listed for their historical quality. These include the Grade II* 23 High Street, Grade II number 71 and 17th century number 92 High Street, Red Lion Inn, The White Hart, and the Old Bear (not Listed but delightful Arts and Crafts style inn), Grade II Listed Danvers House at 109 High Street, Grade II* Church of St Mary, and the freestanding Jubilee Clock, which marked the diamond jubilee of Queen Victoria. It's an especially interesting High Street, as well as convenient for residents, as it is a veritable mix of flats and houses as well as shops, with the national decline in shop trade its a mix much needed in many towns. Cricklade is on the banks of the River Thames, it's the only Wiltshire town that is, however that description may conjure up an image that isn't real as it's little more than 9 miles from its source.
