Chiseldon Museum

The Museum in The Old Chapel, Butts Road, will be open every Saturday from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm until October. Other times can be arranged for groups.

This year, we feature Daisy the Milkmaid and her butter churn, the opening of the railway in 1881, 10 years of WARP, the stories of the Chiseldon men who died in 1916, and the finding of the Cauldrons.

Our Next Meeting
Wednesday, June 15th at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon.

'Flying is Not a Game for Women'

Speaker: Peter Donovan.

The Air Transport Auxiliary was a civilian organisation during World War II – many of them women pilots - whose role was to collect and deliver aircraft from manufacturers to maintenance units and squadrons.  This illustrated presentation will give us an appreciation of the work the ATA did during the war, work that was essential for places such as RAF Wroughton, with its maintenance unit (No. 15) and hangars distributed over the parish.

Meetings are free to members, but there is a £3.00 charge for visitors.  Why not join us?  Membership is still only £10 a year.  For details of the 2016 programme of talks and events, click here.

Please let us know if you have any objects or photos relating to the history of the parish which we could add to our collections.

Stop Press!
The annual study trip for members this year is to Cricklade on Wednesday, August 3rd (change of date), as guests of the Cricklade Historical Society.  We will have a guided tour of the town, a visit to the Museum and a cream tea - all for £5!

Chiseldon Parish Plan
CLHG Members should know that a number of villagers are working on a new plan that will guide Parish Council priorities over the next few years.

We can offer talks to interested groups on the village and its history, on the Cauldrons and on Chiseldon Camp. Please get in touch via the website, email or phone for more details.
