Wiltshire

Status: Active, 18 volumes published

The Wiltshire VCH was founded in 1947, and from 2004 to 2014 was based in the department of history at the University of the West of England, Bristol, where historians worked closely with colleagues at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham.

Of the 18 volumes published, Volumes 1 to 5 in the Wiltshire series are on general topics relating to the whole county. Volumes 6 to 18I are topographical volumes, containing the histories of individual parishes and towns. Around three quarters of the work on Wiltshire has already been finished. Volume 19 is almost complete and it is hoped to publish this in 2015. Planning is in progress for volume 20 for which funding is being sought.
