Christchurch - a landmark

Christchurch is just around the corner from the Roaring Donkey. It is Swindon's most famous landmark as it is build on the top of a hill whereas most of modern Swindon is build on the plain below. The church can be seen from most places around the town and is clearly visible from the train when approaching the town. Swindon is has become known for its less than attrative town centre that has some functionally soulless late 20th century buildings. Christchurch will remain standing as Swindon's landmark when those buildings are demolished and rebuilt.
