I have to say I wasn't full of glee when I stepped through the door... to be honest, we were escaping a shower. A scattering of old bits and bobs greeted my gaze, with a slightly sleepy gentleman manning the desk. I left about an...More

A fine display of Pewsey's suprisingly extensive industrial heritage. It's tucked away from the High Street, but worth finding.

Very informative talk from Mike Asbury, he is very knowledgable. The place is a little treasure trove of local history, the place is quite frankly inspiring. It is in what used to be Whatley's old foundry building, which is old in itself. The place is...More

If you are expecting a large museum, forget it. This is a small rural centre which articulates and exhibites a rural history including the impact of the military on the area. The Royal Flying School was once based in Upavon, a few miles up the...More
