Industrial Archaeology Committee

The Industrial Archaeology Committee acts as a focus for those interested in the Industrial history of the County.  A conference is arranged each year with either a specific subject such as Roads or a focus on new research within the county and nearby.  

The excellent ‘Guide to the Industrial Archaeology of Wiltshire’ booklet which lists remaining industrial sites, with illustrations of many, was edited by Pam Slocombe, a former chairman of the Committee.
