Parish Churches of Wiltshire : A Guide

Cover-Design-and-Text-small-2


This book is the first comprehensive guide to churches in Wiltshire. It will encourage many people to explore not only the nationally significant churches but also the smaller and less obvious places of worship that are tucked up away and easily by-passed. Where appropriate, the author describes new features that have augmented the historic character, such as Millennium stained glass windows, new sculptures, altar frontals, and memorials. Also touched upon are renewal and conservation measures, and the current trend for re-ordering. The book provides a useful guide to those visiting the county who wish to look beyond the main tourist places.

The book comprises:
-   206 pages
-   Over 300 (Anglican and Catholic) churches covered
-   Illustrated with more than 700 colour photographs and drawings

The price for this wonderful book is £20, and all profits go to St Mary’s Church in Burton.

Village Link - Can you help?

VILLAGE LINK 

A registered charity serving your village

We need more volunteers

Are you available occasionally for 1-2 hours to help  someone elderly or disabled by (e.g.) taking them to a doctor’s or hospital appointment ? 

What does it involve?

When someone needs help, we will call you to see if you're available, normally two or more days in advance. If you are, we give you all the details of the task, and answer any questions you may have about it. We pay out of pocket expenses and a mileage allowance to cover drivers' costs. 

How do I find out more?

About Village Link

Village Link was founded in 1993 by a group of volunteers who realised that there is a need for a good neighbour service for people in rural areas to the North and West of Chippenham where public transport is thinly spread. It is funded by donations from its users, from local communities, and grants from several Parish Councils.

Reporting Road Defects

For users of Smart phones such as iPhone and Android, there is an app entitled ‘My Wiltshire’ which allows the user to report road defects directly to our local authority, namely Wiltshire Council. When using this mobile phone app, the person can photograph the problem area (e.g. pot holes), the system will automatically affix a grid location and your phone details and send the message. I am informed that this is a much quicker and more convenient way to get a response from the Council and hopefully solve some of our local road defects.

A conversation with our local garage owner confirms that there has been an increase in vehicles suffering broken/damage suspension, probably directly as a result of our poor road conditions.

The Burton Community Association (BCA) suggest that any resident (with access to a Smart phone) and finding such a road defect, use this process to report the problems.
