About

Westbury Heritage Society was formed in 1992 by a group of people intent on preserving the town's heritage for future generations.

Since then the Society has collected photographs and artefacts which have been kindly lent or donated by the people of Westbury and which reflect the history, culture and heritage of the town.

Regular meetings are held with illustrated talks, often by a local expert, on a topic of relevance to the town or area. There is a small entry charge and refreshments are provided.
Check out the next talk on our What's On page.

Occasional visits are also made to local attractions.

The annual subscription is currently £10.

In 2004 the Society was able to open the Visitor and Heritage Centre as a place to highlight the rich local history and house the Society's collection.

Exhibitions on different themes are held throughout the year, organised by the Society or other organisations from the town.

The Centre also provides tourist information for Westbury and the wider area and sells a small range of souvenirs and books of local interest.

It is run and staffed entirely by volunteers.  We are always looking for volunteers so if you would like to help in some way, please pop into the Visitor & Heritage Centre and chat to the helpers there or contact us through the website and we will get back to you.
