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 many 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 and exhibitions on different themes are held throughout the year. Check out the latest news and our programme of events on our News & What’s On page.
In 2004 the Society opened the Visitor and Heritage Centre as a place to highlight the rich local history and house the Society’s collection but it was decided in 2020 that the society would move to the town’s historic Library and we can now be found on the first floor. We look forward to welcoming you there once government regulations allow.
The society is run entirely by volunteers; if you would like to help in some way, please either drop by the library and chat with us or contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
