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, we are pleased to have local historian, Ward Jones giving a fascinating insight into how law and order has been delivered in Westbury over the past 150 years.  It's a Fair Cop! on Tuesday 29 January at 7.30 pm in the Methodist Church, Westbury.(read more)

Buy your tickets here online, drop into the Visitor Centre in the High Street or just come along on the night.
