About Wiltshire Museum
The Wiltshire Museum, Library and Gallery were set up and are administered by the Wiltshire Archaeological & Natural History Society (WANHS), founded in Devizes in 1853, after the acquisition of the John Britton library of topographical and antiquarian books and manuscripts by a group of Wiltshire gentlemen. The inaugural meeting resolved to form a society ‘to cultivate and collect information on archaeology and Natural History in their various branches and to form a Library and Museum illustrating the History, natural, civic and ecclesiastic of the County of Wilts’. Most of the original members were clergymen and landed gentry.
The Museum and Library have been at their current location in Long Street since 1873, occupying first the old Victorian Devizes Grammar School, then the two Georgian houses on either side of the Entrance Hall. Further extensions have increased its size to the present day. It has overseen many of the famous excavations on Salisbury Plain and the Marlborough Downs made by the Cunnington family and is a repository of the artefacts and writings of earlier antiquaries such as Sir Richard Colt Hoare of Stourhead House.
Its collecting area once covered the whole of the county, although this is now shared with neighbouring museums like the Salisbury and South Wiltshire Museum and the Alexander Keiller Museum at Avebury. Today the Museum is still collecting, and provides a valuable service in identifying and recording artefacts recovered both professionally and by members of the public interested in the increasingly popular subject of archaeology.
The Wine Circle

Led by our mentor Roger, we (often vainly) try to improve our understanding of wine. It is also an excellent way of meeting fellow villagers in a convivial and friendly atmosphere. We meet monthly in each others homes. Contact us at the email address above for more information

Perhaps unsurprisingly for a village located on the edge of Salisbury Plain, we have a fairly high proportion of households with either current, or more especially, historic links to the Armed Forces. It’s worth noting that in the last couple of weeks, the government have launched a new website called Veterans’ Gateway, designed to be the first point of contact for Veterans and their families on issues ranging from healthcare and housing, to employability, finances, personal relationships and more.
Veterans’ Gateway is made up of a consortium of organisations and Armed Forces charities, including The Royal British Legion, SSAFA – the Armed Forces charity, Poppyscotland, Combat Stress and Connect Assist. They have connection with additional key referral organisations – both within and outside the Armed Forces sector – meaning that they can get you to the right organisation who can help. Veterans’ Gateway is funded by The Armed Forces Covenant, this is the first time a group of this kind has come together formally to deliver a service to help the Armed Forces community.

Wiltshire Council is our local unitary Authority.
This is a directory of businesses, organisations and locally relevant individuals that are either based in Winterbourne Stoke, or are of interest to villagers and visitors to the area. As a Parish Council, we believe in advertising the breadth of activities that go on in small, rural communities like our own; activities that have a diversity and global reach that might surprise many.
