On the outskirts of the town there is the North Meadow National Nature Reserve, this Site of Special Scientific Interest and it is home to the UK's largest population of wild Snakeshead Fritillaries, and nearby Blakehill Nature Reserve offers 600 acres of grassland for wildlife enthusiasts. Within a few miles of the town there is also the Swindon and Cricklade Railway, a heritage standard gauge railway and depot operated by a group of local volunteers.
