Her Salisbury Story

Welcome to Her Salisbury Story

Celebrating Salisbury women past and present!  Come on in and read or listen to their inspiring stories.

We are all about sharing the achievements of women past and present who have made a difference to our city or indeed the wider community. Meet female builders, cutlers and publicans as well as doctors, gardeners, artists and authors.

Our articles about historic women have been written and researched by our volunteers while on the contemporary side volunteers have been recording interviews with inspirational women for you to listen to. These will start appearing on the website shortly.

It’s not too late to get involved either, as we are still looking for transcribers for the contemporary women work stream. To find out more visit our Get Involved page.
