Welcome.

Welcome to Westbury Heritage Society and Westbury Museum.

We are now located in the historic Westbury Library in Edward Street where visitors can access the society’s interesting collections, artefacts and the archive of old photos and newspaper clippings which reflect the history, culture and heritage of the town.

Please pop in and visit us at any time and we also hope you will use this site, and our Facebook page Old Westbury, Wiltshire, to find out more about the history of the town and the forthcoming programme of talks and workshops.

About.

Westbury Heritage Society was formed in 1992 by a group of people intent on preserving the town’s heritage with the local community. In 2021, it was decided to rebrand our space in the Library as Westbury Museum.

Our aim is to provide opportunities for local people to best engage with Westbury’s heritage and cultural identity and to generate a greater sense of pride and belonging in the town. We hold regular illustrated talks and exhibitions on different themes throughout the year which are open to all and also work with partners on research projects of local interest.

The Museum, which is free to enter, is run entirely by volunteers; if you would like to help in some way, please either drop by the library (follow our historic timeline up the stairs) and chat with us or contact us on info@westburyheritagesociety.org.uk  and we will get back to you.
