This site has been designed as just one of the resources available to anyone interested in the history of this area. We have endeavoured to make finding the information you want as easy as possible and we are constantly updating and adding relevant information.
We are always on the lookout for items or documents relating to Highworth and its surrounding villages to add to our archive. If you have anything which might be of interest to us, and you have no objection to the society copying or photographing it, we would be delighted to hear from you.
We hope you enjoy our site and happy hunting…
