Things are improving.
We are still not able to meet visitors in the Museum offices, but we can now meet Museum visitors in the main body of the Library and the display area of the Museum is open.
The first meeting of the History Society since February 2020 and lock-down, was a great success.
On Thursday, 9th December, Dorothy Treasure of the Wiltshire Buildings Record, gave a talk entitled “Warminster is Old”. With excellent photographs, she showed that many of the buildings in Warminster include sections that are much older than their appearance would suggest and it is not unusual to find (say) a “Georgian” building with much of the structure dating back to the 1500s.
The meeting was very well attended and, within the constraints of social distancing, the Baptist Church Hall was full.
Early details of the next two meetings of the History Society can be found on the “What’s on?” page.
