Colerne is a village and civil parish in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, midway between Bath and Chippenham in Wiltshire, England. It has an elevated and exposed position 545ft above sea level and overlooks the Box Valley to the south (where Isambard Kingdom Brunel's Box Tunnel is). It is bounded by a stretch of the Fosse Way Roman road to the west and by Bybrook to the south-east.The 2001 census recorded a parish population of 2,807 in 2001, increasing to 2,972 at the 2011 census. Colerne is frequently described as "The Village on the Hill" in books about the Village but, in reality, not by residents.Earliest HistoryAround 100 BC a Late Iron Age camp was set up to the North of Colerne .More About ColerneColerne's historic core sits on top of a high ridge, though some of its stone built houses are located down the valley side to the south. Modern estates were built to the north of the ancient, narrow streets, and there is some modern infill. It is a lovely little village: apart from the ancient core, there is Southwood, Northwood and Pinewood; Thickwood is a separate development of mainly late twentieth century houses to the east, within the parish. It is the stereotypical quaint village, with a medieval church of St. John the Baptist at its heart (the church contains fragments of medieval glass and sculpture, but was much rebuilt in the nineteenth century, although fragments of medieval window tracery survive in the churchyard). The village is also served by an active independent chapel (Colerne Evangelical Church) while other former places of worship, including a former Primitive Methodist chapel at the west end of the village, also survive but have been converted to private houses. In addition there are two pubs, a Liberal club, a Constitutional club, a Post Office, a food shop, a newsagents and a florist.
