About the railway village buildings

Swindon was chosen by Brunel as the location for the railway repair works in the early 1840s, being the mid-point along the new Great Western mainline, between Paddington and Bristol. The village of mainly back-to-back small terrace houses was built to house the many workers, as at the time Swindon was a small market town of 2,500.

The grand building in the foreground began life in the 1850s as a communal lodging house for new workers to the railway works, later becoming a Methodist chapel, museum, and now The Platform community centre. In the background is the three storey Glue Pot pub – the last remaining pub in the village area.

The Chippenham poster also features a piece of GWR and Brunel history.

High quality print

All designs are original and created from scratch.

The posters are printed in the UK on a high quality digital press. They are printed on heavyweight matte paper and are UV light resistant. 

Unframed prints come clear wrapped and flat to avoid creasing & damage.


All posters can be framed to order, and are hand-framed in the UK. 

The frames have a 21mm wide edge (23mm deep) and are available in black or white smooth-finished hardwood. Acrylic perspex is used for the glaze, rather than glass as it’s less prone to breakages in shipping and looks just as good on your wall.

Framed orders take 3-5 working days until dispatch from our partner supplier.

Locally designed

All of the poster designs are created by Matt, who lives and works in Malmesbury and grew up in Cirencester. 

Beginning in 2019 with a few designs sold mostly at market stalls, Cotswold Poster Co has now sold over 18,000 posters and cards (both online and to local shops).

2% of all purchases support Glos and Wilts Wildlife Trusts to benefit the local environment.
