INTERESTING PORTRAYAL OF WARMINSTER
The guest speaker at the recent meeting of the United Church Ladies Group was local historian Danny Howell.
Using slides old and new he gave an interesting portrayal of some of the changes and events in Warminster during this century. The town's prosperity was based on wool, corn, malt, silk and ironfounding.
Views of the town from the top of St. Lawrence's Chapel and Christ Church showed how new housing estates have changed the surrounding landscape from the mid-1920s onwards.
Close-ups of the Market Place, East Street, High Street, and George Street, brought back many memories of former shops and their proprietors.
