Wiltshire

About the group A group for images that illustrate the history of Wiltshire.

Created 28 November 2012

This photo of Malmesbury shows that not a great deal has changed. The silk mills are now residential (Avon Mills) and the gas tanks are no longer there. Fortunately, as of 2013, the green space is still green, though plans are afoot for a supermarket development.

So how many cattle markets did Wiltshire have, and have they all now gone?

There is still a livestock market/auction at Netherhampton, Salisbury. (And not quite Wiltshire, but there is also one in Shaftesbury, Dorset.)

And, lastly, a close up of Avebury Manor and St James's Church.

This image has been shown as part of the event held at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre - as a reference to everybody who attended and would like to revisit the selection!

So pleased to see that we finally have a Wiltshire group on the website - welcome! And you have even picked one of my favourite images as your cover photo. I am looking forward to a lively discussion about the history of this beautiful county!
