The Royal town of Wootton Bassett is rightly proud of the status awarded it in October 2011 in recognition of the support given to brave servicemen and women who tragically lost their lives in defence of our country. The town itself is very convenient for the M4 motorway and the major centre of Swindon. Associate Director, Ann Freeman comments "Royal Wootton Bassett sits right in the heart of Strakers territory which enables our clients to benefit from the strength and size of our network"
AD 681 is usually taken as the starting point for recorded history of Wootton Bassett, then known as Wodeton, it being referred to in that year in a Malmesbury Abbey charter granting land to the Abbot. Archaeological discoveries in the area tend to confirm the tradition that the original "Wodeton" settlememnt was allegedly under continuous occupation throughout Celtic and Romano-British periods, but of Wodeton itself we hear no more until it was sacked by the marauding Danes in 1015, whereupon the survivors decided to move uphill to the site of the present High Street.
In the early 21st century, the town became known for the informal tributes it paid during military repatriation funeral processions which passed through the town. On 16 March 2011, Prime Minister David Cameron announced that while "from September, military repatriations will no longer pass through the town of Wootton Bassett" Her Majesty has agreed to confer the title 'Royal' upon the town, as an enduring symbol of the nation’s admiration and gratitude"
