HISTORY

Westbury Manor-15.png

There has been a significant house here on Foxcovert Road for over a thousand years.  Through ancient wars and agricultural changes, the people making a living here have seen many owners and their stories speak for many small farms in this part of the country.

In 2018 we were lucky enough to receive a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund in order to research the history of our site.

With the help of dedicated volunteers we were able to piece together our rich heritage from Saxon graves to the Domesday book and how this long historic journey takes us to where we are now - Westbury Arts Centre.

As part of this history project we produced a booklet documenting our findings, do read on to find out more about our history.
