Local History

Local HistoryA wide selection of books, manuscripts, postcards and photographs relating to Wiltshire towns and villages awaits the local historian . Maps, indexed newspaper cuttings and sale catalogues help to trace history on the ground while trade and industry records chronicle the working life of the county.

Bound local newspapers from the mid eighteenth century are a rich source of information on local people and events, elections and changes in the development of the county. For an overview of Wiltshire Newspapers see the Wiltshire section of the Newsplan website hosted by Devon Libraries.

We also have a large section on works by Wiltshire authors.
