Location and Transport

The site is well located on the Bowerhill Industrial Estate just to the South of the town centre approximately 14 miles (22 km) to the south of junction 17 of the M5 Motorway along the A350. The town of Chippenham is 6 miles (9.5 km) to the North, Trowbridge 5 Miles (8 km) to the South and the City of Bath 11 miles (18km) distant. Melksham has a population of some 22,905 (2011 census). The town has many varied industries including Avon Rubber, which previously owned the Avon Tyre plant in the town centre. In 2000, Avon Rubber plc moved to a large purpose-built facility just 3 km (1.9 mi) to the south of the town near Semington, employing over 300 people. Melksham is also home to Knorr-Bremse, a designer and manufacturer of railway braking systems, at a modern purpose-built facility in south Bowerhill. Directly to the Western boundary of the site is the recently completed 170,000 sq.ft. Herman Miller furniture factory.
