Welcome to Westbury Town Council

Working for a better Westbury

A former Victorian mill town, Westbury in Wiltshire has a more interesting and significant history than you might imagine. Situated on the western edge of Wiltshire, its most famous landmark is the impressive Westbury White Horse carved into the chalk which is visible for miles around.

Many of the town’s oldest buildings can be seen in the conservation area around the Market Place – a charming old square which leads through to the churchyard with the 14th century Grade 1 listed All Saints Church and then on to Church Street to find one of the oldest operational swimming baths in the country.

Westbury is exceptionally well-positioned for all UK major road and railway connections with the mainline railway station offering links to London, Wales and the whole of the South West of England.

The variety of surrounding countryside makes Westbury a delight for both the walker and cyclist and with places to shop, eat and visit, Westbury has a certain charm that makes it attractive to residents and visitors alike.

Westbury is bounded by Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset.

Warm spaces this winter

Westbury Town Council is joining a growing number of councils and government bodies opening its doors and offering people a safe, warm place to drop in for a few hours of the day during the winter months.

Everyone has a right to be warm so public spaces such as community centres, churches, and libraries are being used as 'warm spaces', allowing people who may be struggling to heat their homes this winter to gather inside the public buildings.

Deborah Urch, Town Clerk said: “The Laverton will be open from 9am to 4pm, Monday to Friday from Monday 3rd October through to the end of March and everyone is welcome to drop in for a few hours or for the full day. We have free Wifi for guests and will also make hot drinks available each morning and afternoon.”

“We understand this is a worrying time for people and we will do what we can to support residents. Our community room will be a warm and welcoming space and is open to all.”

The Laverton thelaverton.co.uk is located on Bratton Road, Westbury, just a short walk from the town centre. For further information call 01373 822232.
