who are vulnerable. We also need to expand our activities which will

As you can imagine this kind of project costs a lot of money to complete, and we are currently investigating our funding options.

If you have any time available on Monday to Saturday either 10am to 1pm or 1pm to 4pm, we would love to hear from you!

Here is a recent Tripadvisor review about the Heritage Centre: “We really enjoyed exploring this centre which is full of fascinating items - really well displayed and labelled. A mention should also be made of the lovely volunteer!”

The Museum

The Pewsey Heritage Centre collection is housed in what was once the foundry building of Whatley & Hiscock, agricultural engineers.

phc registered museum

Indeed, the machinery of this firm formed the basis for the Heritage Centre. When engineering work ceased, the local history society set up a museum to conserve the heavy machinery. This has grown into the resource you can see today.

You will find more information about the history of the building and the collection in the Museum History section of this website.
