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. 

Come and see us at the Chalke Valley History Festival June 20th-26th.

 Visit our tent at CVHF.  We’ll be there every day from 10-6pm in a green and  white striped tent (kindly sponsored by Parker Bullen)  for stories, puzzles, trails and more.  See you there!

Talk or Walk? We are now pleased to offer local organisations the opportunity to book a talk or a guided walk following Her Salisbury Footprint. If your organisation is interested please download this booking form for walks and talks, complete it and return it to us.
