Return Of Parish Boundary Marker


The Heytesbury/Knook parish boundary marker which was given to Warminster Dewey Museum earlier in 1993 by the Highways Department of Wiltshire County Council has been returned to them.

The Museum had not accessioned it but Graham Zebedee had given it an undercoat of paint as the first stage of conservation.

It transpired that the marker was a Grade II listed monument and should have remained in situ, at the junction of the B390 Chitterne Road with the A36 road between Warminster and Salisbury, at Heytesbury.

Danny Howell, Assistant Curator at Warminster Dewey Museum, had received phone calls about the marker from the County Council and the Department of the Environment requesting its return.

The Highways Department have now re-instated the marker, where it was before, adjacent the road outside Bunter's Cottage, Heytesbury.
