Castle Combe is a small village in Wiltshire, England, with a population of about 350. Ranked number 2 in The Times’ 30 best villages, it is renowned for its attractiveness and tranquillity, and for fine buildings including the medieval church. The 14th century market cross, erected when the privilege to hold a weekly market in Castle Combe was granted, is situated where the three principal streets converge. Some small stone steps near the cross were for horse riders to mount and dismount and close by are the remains of the buttercross.
