We have a large number of items in the museum. These are just a few.
This cheque was written by Thomas Trow in 1863
We had our own assassination attempt and “Wanted” poster. A reward of £100 was offered. We don’t know if it was ever claimed !
This shoe was found in Priory Cottage in the 1970’s (the oldest house in Wootton Bassett). It dates back to Tudor times.
These are death medals from WW1 for two local men, James Sly and William Sly .
We have lots of maps as well. This one is from the 1880’s and shows the extent of the town back then.
