The Society was formed as the Bourne Valley Historical & Record Society in 1948 by a group of residents in the three Winterbourne villages north of Salisbury, Wiltshire, who wished to collect and preserve material documenting the area’s rich history.

The Society was renamed the Bourne Valley Historical Society (BVHS) and its coverage extended to include all those villages straddling the River Bourne running southwards from Cholderton to Hurdcott.

We continue to be dedicated to researching topics of local historical interest and members are encouraged to participate and conduct their own studies into projects relevant to the heritage of our area.
