We are supported by Chiseldon Parish Council who provided the venue for our museum.
Chiseldon Local History Group
Chiseldon Local History Group was formed to record and preserve objects and information related to the Parish of Chiseldon and where possible to make this
available to the public either through publications or in our museum.

Our museum is now closed for the 2023 season.
It will re-open in spring 2024 with exciting new exhibits.
Our next meeting is on Wednesday, 15 November 2023 in Holy Cross Church Hall at 7.30pm when the subject is ‘Who did discover Australia?’ presented by Geoff King. Indigenous peoples have lived in Australia for tens of thousands of years. There are, however, competing claims for ‘discovery’ from the western perspective. Was it Captain Cook? Was it Abel Tasman? Or other Dutch explorers such as Willem Janszoon or Francisco Pelseart? Come along and listen to the stories about each claimant.
