Calling the good people of North Swindon ...

Calling the good people of North Swindon and Wichelstowe and anyone newly moved to Swindon.

How much do you know about our town's fascinating and varied history?

Have you seen a copy of the Swindon Heritage magazine? The latest edition includes the story of Swindon soldiers who served in the Battle of the Somme.

Find out about the Swindon Heritage blue plaque project. Our first blue plaque commemorates Swindon Suffragette Edith New born at 24 North Street on March 17, 1877.

Read about the Great Western Railway's first loco driver and visit his grave at Radnor Street Cemetery, this Sunday July 10.

So, what's happening this Sunday, July 10? Only the first Swindon Heritage History Day with guided cemetery walks and a local history exhibition. The Swindon Society will be there and the Wiltshire Family History Society and ... well anyone who is anyone on the local history scene (see details below).

How to find Radnor Street Cemetery

Come and find out more about where you live. We look forward to meeting you too.
