Welcome to our updated web site. Our volunteers have been busy recently updating our main display. This display commemorates the 75th anniversary of D-Day and Wootton Bassett’s involvement in this momentous event which took place in 1944.

The display shows the fact that there was a US Army mobile laundry in town at the Manor House. We have some photos about this time.

We have also updated our railway station display from 1918. It now shows how it might have looked in 1944.

Some of the other displays have also been freshened up.

We look forward to you coming to see it very soon.
