About VCH Wiltshire

The Wiltshire VCH has two full-time staff based at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre in Chippenham. The research and writing for the volumes, and their publication, are overseen by the Institute of Historical Research , UWE, and by the Wiltshire VCH Committee. In addition to research and writing, the county staff work to promote local history through membership of local societies and by giving talks and presentations.

Each parish history considers general themes in the development of the community from pre-history to the present day. It is not possible to include every detail, but each history provides a framework of authoritative information as a basis for further research. The references given in the footnotes indicate the location of all the main sources. A map of the research already undertaken by VCH Wiltshire is shown below while the searchable Parish Index provides an easy way to find out whether the VCH has covered your parish and in which of the VCH volumes it was published.
