Fairfax Antiques and Reclamation is set in the lovely garden of Langley Green, a beautiful house dating back to the 12th century, in the tranquil village of Langley Burrell.
The antiques, furniture and statues are displayed outside in Langley Green’s walkways, beds and borders. There are stunning weathered stone lions and urns, perfectly proportioned seats and benches, classic figures and plenty of whimsical characters ready to be discovered.
Wander through the leafy arch to the Blue Summer House where you’ll find an ever-changing collection of interesting home and gift ideas including delicate birdcages hanging from the beams.
There is a wide selection of French-styled wire tables and chairs for the garden or conservatory. Choose from the weathered look on display outside or ask for the new pieces, which are always kept in stock.
Behind the garden is the reclamation yard, home to a host of fascinating original items that have been rescued from character properties and gardens.
Visit the garden by appointment or at one of the themed open days when there is a small entrance fee, which includes tea and cake.
This is a house with a rich history. Maud Heath lived here, she left a legacy for the people of Chippenham in the form of “Maud Heath’s Causeway” a pathway on sixty four arches that carries the road from Bremhill to Langley Burrell.

Visit our local Maud Heath’s Memorial column on Wick Hill; Maud Heath was a widow from East Tytherton village who died in 1474 and left land to provide an income to maintain a causeway from Wick Hill to Chippenham for the benefit of the country folk taking their goods to market. We all love to walk to the ancient Maud Heath's Causeway, a pathway in rural Wiltshire rising above the Avon floodplain on sixty-four brick arches, carrying an undistinguished country road between Bremhill and Langley Burrell.
