Welcome

Westbury Heritage Society would like to welcome you to the town and the Visitor and Heritage Centre, located in the High Street.

Westbury is a small town in Wiltshire, one of the south-western counties of England, bounded by Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset.

The town lies beneath its famous White Horse hill-carving at the western extremity of Salisbury Plain.

The Westbury Visitor and Heritage Centre was opened as a place to exhibit interesting local information and artefacts. It is run by people wanting to preserve the heritage of this lovely town.

Please use this site to find out more about the history of the town, information about the Visitor and Heritage Centre, and the Society's current programme.

 

For our next talk in March, Liz Argent will be going back to the classroom.  Liz will be looking at education in Westbury and will trace its development from the earliest days when schools were often set up with funds from local benefactors like John Matravers. 

The talk will take place on Tuesday 26 March at our usual venue, the Methodist Church in Station Road.  Everyone is welcome to what is sure to be a great talk and a chance to share your own school day memories of the "Happiest Days of Our Lives". (read more) 

Tickets can be purchased online by clicking on the icon below or on the night.  WHS members can only purchase their tickets on the night.
